A VICIOUS child abuser faces an extra 18 years on top of his prison sentence.
Prosecutors want the Almeria man to spend his life behind bars after being convicted of psychologically and sexually abusing his own children.
He was jailed several years ago for beating his partner. Since then police have uncovered years of abuse the man inflicted on his three young children, two boys and one girl.
They managed to secure a conviction for the violence and now judges are deliberating on his sentence.
The court heard how he forced his eldest daughter to clean the house naked. He cut her legs with a knife and made her fight with her brother while undressed. The youngest son was told to kiss his sister or be beaten, while the oldest endured frequent bullying and violence.
