Man got daughter pregnant, told her to throw babies down air shaft

Getting his teenage daughter pregnant wasn't enough for Jose Ventura, a 46-year-old from New Jersey. He also ordered the girl to kill the resulting babies.

How did the police find out? After one of the babies was found crying at the bottom of an air shaft in Ventura's building. That's where they also found the mummified body of a second infant.

Ventura will be sentenced later this week. He could get 35 years. The daughter has pleaded to guilty to reckless manslaughter and aggravated assault. She's been helping prosecutors put together the case against Dad.
