Austrian Josef Fritzl, who kept his daughter in a cellar and fathered her seven children, has been convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Fritzl, 73, was found guilty of all charges against him, including rape, incest, murder and enslavement.
The defendant sat still for the verdict, telling the court that he accepted it and would not appeal.
The court ordered that Fritzl would serve his sentence in a secure psychiatric facility.
Fritzl’s lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, said outside the court after the verdict: "He showed in his confession that he realises the dimension of his crimes and offences and as such the verdict is the logical consequence."
The life sentence was delivered on the verdict of murder by neglect of one of his daughters children, who died soon after birth.
The jury accepted prosecutors’ arguments that the child would have survived if it had received medical care denied by Fritzl.
The defendant first denied murder and enslavement but changed his plea to guilty after seeing testimony from his daughter.
The BBC’s Bethany Bell at the court says there has been an enormous amount of media interest in the trial, and its twists and turns have been enormous.
At the time of the first details of this case, no-one could grasp the extent of this man’s crimes, she says, and Austria still has to come to terms with it.
