NEW DETAILS ON KHQ.COM: Ohio Prosecutor May Seek Execution In Captive Case

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio prosecutor says he may seek the death penalty against the man accused of imprisoning three women at his home for about a decade for forcing them to suffer miscarriages.
    
Cuyahoga County prosecutor Timothy McGinty says Ohio law calls for the death penalty for the "most depraved criminals who commit aggravated murder during the course of a kidnapping." He says aggravated murder charges could be filed related to pregnancies terminated by force.
    
Ariel Castro is being held on $8 million bail. The 52-year-old former school bus driver was under a suicide watch in jail, where he was being held on kidnapping and rape charges.
    
Authorities say he held three women inside his home for about a decade.
    
McGinty suggests the charges could number in the hundreds, if not thousands.
