Death penalty possible in Cleveland kidnap case

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ariel Castro could face the death penalty for the brutal crimes committed while holding three Cleveland women against their will.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty vows to pursue aggravated murder charges against Castro for, “terminating pregnancies” during the decade-long kidnapping.

“It is my duty to pursue justice that is swift, relentless and fair. For the sake of our community, we will do so vigorously and without compromise,” McGinty told reporters Thursday.

Castro is currently being held in the Cuyahoga County Jail on  $8 million bond, facing four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape.

While in custody, Castro is reportedly giving police a lengthy explanation for his alleged crimes.

Cleveland police sources say a suicide note found in Castro’s home blames Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight for their kidnappings, because they got in his car.

Castro also claims to be a sex addict, as well as a victim of childhood abuse.

Authorities say Castro is also opening up to investigators, giving them every detail of the women’s ten-year ordeals.
