    Shuttered electronics retailer Circuit City is set to make a comeback next month, at least online, CNBC reported.

    Its website will relaunch Feb. 15, the company's CEO, Ronny Shmoel, said Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show. It will include several novel features, including search by photo and tech support via video chat, he said.

    Down the line, Circuit City plans to gear up towards its own showrooms, according to consumer electronics website Twice.

    Circuit City filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and closed its last store in 2009. Shmoel acquired its brand, website and associated trademarks in 2015, and now says that "major retailers" are interested in working with it on stores within stores.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.
