Austrian Josef Fritzl who fathered seven children with a daughter he locked in a cellar for 24 years has pleaded guilty to murder and enslavement.

This reversed an innocent plea on the charges. Fritzl aged 73, began his trial pleadeding guilty to incest with his daughter Elisabeth but denied murdering their newborn son and enslaving her in the windowless purpose-built cellar under his home. The court is now considering sentencing but he is expected to spend the rest of his life in jail.
