London, July 18 : Elisabeth Fritzl has finally broken her silence and accused her incest dad Josef Fritzl for murdering her baby.
Elisabeth Fritzl has finally broken her silence and accused her incest dad Josef Fritzl for murdering her baby.

During four days of testimony, the 42-year-old incest victim told prosecutors that her evil dad was responsible for three-day-old Michael's death.

The baby was among twins born in 1997 to Elisabeth, who had seven children by Fritzl during her 24 years in a dungeon at the family home in Amstetten, Austria.

He died and Fritzl tossed his body in a furnace.

Prosecutors must decide if the tot could have been saved if he had taken him to hospital.

Elisabeth's testimony will spare her children the torment of having to testify against Fritzl.

"There is a mountain of evidence against him. There will be no need to make the children, who are already scarred, talk about what happened," The Sun quoted Austrian police chief Franz Polzer, as saying.

Fritzl, 74, is expected to stand trial in the autumn for crimes including rape, child cruelty and false imprisonment.

He could be charged with murder or manslaughter over baby Michael. (ANI)
