sCNN is reporting that DNA tests have confirmed that a 73-year-old Austrian man fathered six children with the now 42-year-old daughter he is accused of imprisoning for 24 years in a basement.
Josef Fritzl appeared in court Tuesday after having confessed that he raped his daughter and fathered seven children with her. The seventh child died as an infant and Fritzl said he burned the body in an incinerator.
Fritzl, a retired electrical engineer, faces a possible 15 years in prison if charged and convicted of rape.
Authorities also are saying the the daughter and her mother were reunited on Sunday, along with most of the daughter's children. Officials called the meeting "astonishing."
