Dungeon dad's trial to start in March

By Super Admin

London, Jan 23 (ANI): The trial of Josef Fritzl, an Austrian man who allegedly held his daughter captive for 24 years and fathered her seven children, is due to start on March 16.

According to Franz Cutka, a court official in the eastern Austrian city of St Poelten, Fritzl's trial will be over within a week.

In November last year, the electrical engineer was charged with murder for refusing to arrange medical treatment for the seventh child, who died in infancy, reports the Daily Express.

He also faces charges of rape, incest, false imprisonment and enslavement.

Investigators have claimed that Fritzl has confessed to imprisoning and raping his daughter Elisabeth - now in her 40s - in soundproofed, windowless cellar rooms he built beneath his home starting in 1984, shortly after she turned 18.

The crime came to light in April last year. (ANI)
