London, Nov 27 (ANI): An Argentine man, who fathered 10 children with his daughter after allegedly raping her repeatedly over three decades, has been arrested.

Armando Gomez was originally arrested for stealing cattle.

However, the 62-year-old's arrest prompted daughter Juana to tell police he was the father of her children following a 30-year reign of terror.

Tests have shown Gomez, who allegedly started abusing his daughter after her mum died when she was two, is their father.

He is now facing 20 years in prison.

"There was no space for pain, just punishment, threats, torment and children to take care of," the Daily Mail quoted the daughter, who lives in a small village in the northern Argentine province of Santa Fe, as saying.

"The only other option was death and he offered me it all the time," she said.

Juana's first child, a boy born when she was 15 and other children are aged between six and 26.

Investigating judge said, "The suspect is maintaining his innocence but the DNA tests have confirmed his paternity." (ANI)
