Life sentence for Josef Fritzl


Josef Fritzl, the 73-year-old who fathered seven children by his daughter has been found guilty of all charges and sentenced to life in a secure psychiatric facility.

He had initially denied the murder and slavery charges but reversed his plea after being shaken by 11 hours of videotaped testimony from his daughter.

Colette McBeth reports.
