UPDATE: Ariel Castro Arraigned on Rape, Kidnap Charges
CLEVELAND (AP) -- A Cleveland man has been arraigned on charges of rape and kidnapping days after three women missing for about a decade were found alive at his home.
Ariel Castro appeared in court Thursday morning. He looked down at the ground while lawyers spoke to the judge. Bond was set at $2 million on each case.
Police say they've talked with both Castro, who is a former school bus driver, and the three women at length in building their case.
While they're not revealing many details, police do say the women were kept inside Castro's house for all but a few brief minutes over the last 10 years.
The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004 and were found Monday after one of them screamed for help to escape and contacted police.
UPDATE: Suspect in Cleveland Kidnappings Due in Court Today
CLEVELAND (AP) -- A former Cleveland school bus driver suspected of keeping three women captive for the past decade is to make his first court appearance.
Ariel Castro is due in a Cleveland courtroom for his arraignment this morning on kidnapping and rape charges.
Police say they've talked with both Castro and the three women at length in building their case.
While they're not revealing many details, police do say the women were kept inside Castro's house for all but a brief few minutes over the last 10 years.
Police say what remains a mystery is how the women were kept in the house so long.
They got out of the house Monday when one made a daring escape out of a screen door and called 911.
UPDATE: New Details Emerge in Cleveland Missing Women Case
CLEVELAND (AP) -- A Cleveland councilman says three long-missing women found alive at a home were subjected to sexual abuse for a prolonged period and had miscarriages.
Councilman Brian Cummins says that he spoke to government and law enforcement sources about the case.
He says many details remain unclear, including the number of pregnancies and the conditions under which the miscarriages occurred.
He also says the women were kept in the basement for some time without having access to the rest of the house. He says he doesn't have details about the conditions in which they were held.
Police say the women were apparently bound with ropes and chains.
The women found Monday disappeared between 2002 and 2004. Three men are in custody; one, Ariel Castro, has been charged with rape and kidnapping.
