Fritzl Schnitzel fears

Incest dad Josef Fritzl has ordered his lawyers to fight plans to have him incarcerated in a psychiatric ward after hearing he would be locked up with a teenage cannibal killer with a psychotic hatred for paedophiles.

German Robert Ackermann - who killed a pal and then dined on his brains - is thought to have flown into a furious rage when he read about pervert Fritzl's paedophile abuse of his daughter and the 24 year hell he put her through.

But this week it was revealed that prosecutors have specifically requested that Fritzl be kept in the high security metal asylum at Göllersdorf where Austria's cannibal killer is also incarcerated - and who also learned that he might soon be seeing Fritzl as a jail mate.

Now beast Fritzl, who raped daughter Elisabeth repeatedly and forced her to watch porn films and act out scenes from them in the underground dungeon where he kept her and his incest children imprisoned, fears the cannibal is planning to come after him if he serves his sentence in a high security mental asylum.

And he is desperate to make sure no matter what happens at his trial, which is expected to take place in March next year, he is kept away from Ackermann.

"He is terrified by the thought of ending up in a cell, or even the same building, as Ackermann. He thinks the cannibal is out to get him and is even preparing a special meal of Fritzl schnitzel," said a warder at the Sankt Pölten jail where Fritzl is being held in custody.

Fritzl is expected to have to serve his sentence in a high security mental asylum.

His jail mates will include teenage cannibal killer Ackermann whose last victim was also a sex pervert. Ackerman, who was 19 at the time, munched on the brains of Austrian-born Josef Schweiger, 49, for two days before the body was found by a cleaner at a hostel in Vienna.

Police said the victim was killed with a 22lb dumbbell blow to the head. Parts of his brain were eaten, most of his internal organs and parts of his biceps.

Remains of Schweiger were found on a plate in an adjoining room. His body had been slit open with a razor-sharp butterfly knife found at the scene.

One warder at the Sankt Pölten jail where Fritzl is currently held said: "People in here for anything involving abusing children always get a hard time from the other inmates. They used to bang on his cell and shout ‘Satan - come out and play’. Now they bang on his cell and shout Ackermann is going to eat your brains."

Fritzl's trial is set to take place in March after he was formally charged this week. A psychiatric report has concluded that Fritzl is sane and fully responsible for his actions when he imprisoned his daughter for 24 years and raped her repeatedly, forcing her to have seven children underground.

The conclusion means he will be tried in a regular court. But a psychiatric report also recommends that if convicted he is locked up in a high security hospital for the psychologically disturbed - of which there is only one in Austria - Göllersdorf.

Staff at the institution are also unhappy about learning that Fritzl will end up there.

Spokesman Johann Winkelbauer said: "From the end of the year our budget is set to be cut massively and we are likely to lose 15 psychiatrists and face other cutbacks." He warned it was already difficult to guarantee the safety and well-being of those inside and that further cuts would make it almost impossible.

The thought of spending time with mental patients instead of in a regular jail has left Fritzl terrified.

He has already spent more than a year in jail for a previous rape conviction and has also settled into a routine in the jail in St Poelten where he's been since his arrest in April.
