(Newser) – The charges against Josef Fritzl reveal fresh details of the ordeal he put his imprisoned daughter through, including forcing her to watch pornographic films and reenact scenes with him, the Daily Telegraph reports. Fritzl also beat and kicked his daughter, Elisabeth, whom he imprisoned for 24 years in a cellar, when she refused to co-operate, an Austrian tabloid quotes prosecutors as saying.

Elisabeth's will was eventually broken and she gave up fighting, feeling her "situation was hopeless," prosecutors said. Fritzl has now been charged with murder as well as rape, incest and enslavement. When one of the seven babies he fathered with Elizabeth turned blue shortly after birth he refused to take the infant to a hospital, saying, "What must be, will be," according to prosecutors.

Without taking away all the responsibility that belongs to this evil man, I find it interesting that so many people defend porn, yet reading that he "forced her to watch pornographic films and reenact scenes with him" just proves that porn did have it's own little evil part in this.

Monster, monster, monster. I'd sentence him to life in the dungeon he forced Elisabeth and her children to live in.

I don't know why there would even have to be a trial, just give the monster the needle
