Berlin – A 48-year-old German man will appear in court next week accused of sexually abusing his stepdaughter for more than two decades and fathering at least seven children by her, a court spokesperson said today.

The man, identified as Detlef S from the village of Fluterschen in western Germany, is also accused of abusing his own daughter and a stepson, and forcing both daughters into prostitution.

The spokesperson said DNA tests suggested the man is the father of at least seven children by his stepdaughter.

Another child, whom he may have fathered, is believed to have died.

Detlef S has been held by police since August and will appear in court in the city of Koblenz on February 15.

He is believed to have committed the abuse between 1987 and 2010.
