Josef Fritzl changed his mind and decided to plead guilty to all charges today after watching his daughter's video testimony in court. The powerful interview was played yesterday, and the verdict and sentencing will happen tomorrow.
While pleading guilty to the death of his newborn son, Fritzl said:
I was hoping the little one would survive, but I should have done something. I don't know why I didn't help. I just lost sight . . . sorry.
The court doctor has recommended that Fritzl be sent to a secure psychiatric facility, even though he's not insane in the legal sense of the word. Fritzl faces life in jail for the murder conviction.
