Elisabeth Fritzl 'was raped 3,000 times'

By Super Admin

London, Mar 17 (ANI): Austrian incest fiend Josef Fritzl raped his daughter up to 3,000 times in his home-made dungeon, it has emerged.

Yesterday, the full horror of Fritzl's vile crimes were laid bare in a courtroom.

Although he admitted imprisoning his daughter, Elisabeth, for 24 years and repeatedly raping her, he rejected murder charges.

A jury was also told that Elisabeth was forced to deliver her own babies in a rat-infested dungeon with nothing but a dog-eared book on pregnancy to help her, reports The Daily Star.

Her father Josef, who raped her on a daily basis, made no attempt to help her through the births of four of their seven children.

When one of their babies became seriously ill shortly after birth, Fritzl refused to get medical help, saying: "What will be, will be," it is alleged.

The baby died three days after he was born, and Fritzl allegedly burned his body in a stove in the cellar.

During the trial jury was shown part of an 11-hour video of Elisabeth giving evidence, which forms the main part of the prosecution case.

Fritzl's wife Rosemarie refused to give evidence.

The trial continues. (ANI)
