A 62-year-old man has been arrested and charged with raping his daughter for more than 30 years and fathering 10 children with her, in a case "even worse" than that of Austria's Josef Fritzl in 2008, a judge has said.
"The accused denied the allegations but DNA tests have confirmed paternity," Judge Virgilio Palud told local radio.
The man has been charged with repeated sexual abuse and incest, crimes that carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, he added.
Judge Palud said another daughter of the suspect also claims to have been raped repeatedly by her father and to have had an abortion before she fled her home in the farming community of Santa Fe province.
The case is the third such shocking father-daughter abuse to emerge in Argentina recently.
so tragic to have to live almost her whole life being raped & threatened by her 'father'...and his max sentence isn't as long as he abused her.
