London, Dec 2 (ANI): Terrence Eames, the 53-year-old British man who tortured his four kids and kept them prisoner, has been jailed for five years.

According to reports, Eames, of Ashby, Derbys, physically and psychologically abused his two girls and two boys for 13 years.

It was last month that he was found guilty of 16 cruelty charges, reports The Daily Star.

Judge Michael Fowler told him at Derby Crown Court: "The violence you used involved an element of sadism."

Eames' case mirrors that of jailed Austrian Josef Fritzl, 74.

He kept his daughter Elisabeth, 43, as his sex slave for 24 years and fathered seven kids with her. (ANI)
