From the BBC:

The Austrian father who allegedly imprisoned and abused his daughter for 24 years has been charged with murdering one of their seven children.

Austrian prosecutors say the charges against Joseph Fritzl carry a prison sentence of 10 years to life.

Mr Fritzl is also charged with slavery and rape. If found guilty, he faces 20 years in jail on those charges.

Mr Fritzl fathered seven children with his daughter Elisabeth, now aged 42, in a cellar at his home in Amstetten, west of Vienna.

Three of them grew up in the cellar – without ever seeing daylight – while three others were brought up by Mr Fritzl’s wife.

Now prosecutors have levelled charges at him over the death of the seventh child, a baby born in the underground chamber.

“Despite recognising the baby’s life-threatening situation, he deliberately decided not to intervene,” prosecutors said in the charge sheet against Mr Fritzl.

He has told police that he took the body of the child and incinerated it in a furnace.

Elisabeth Fritzl disappeared in August 1984, when, police say, her father lured her downstairs, drugged her and handcuffed her before locking her up.

DNA tests have shown Mr Fritzl – who has allegedly told a psychiatrist he was “born to rape” – is the father of Elisabeth’s surviving children.
