WARPED father Josef Fritzl today admitted all the charges against him at his trial in Austria.

In a surprise move, Fritzl told a court in St Poelten, west of Vienna, that he had a change of heart and decided to acknowledge his guilt in the death of one of the seven children he fathered with his captive daughter Elisabeth, whom he kept in a dungeon under the family home for more than 24 years.

Fritzl told the judge and jury: “I plead guilty to all the charges in the indictment.”

He faces up to life imprisonment on the homicide count. He was also charged with rape, enslavement, false imprisonment and coercion.
