Hundreds of New Charges Filed in Ohio Kidnap Case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Cleveland man has been indicted on hundreds of additional charges related to accusations that he held three women captive in his home for a decade and raped them.

A 977-count indictment filed Friday against Ariel Castro includes aggravated murder, kidnapping and rape charges. The murder charge involves accusations that Castro starved and punched one of the women while she was pregnant until she miscarried.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Prosecutor Tim McGinty says his office has yet to decide whether to make the case eligible for a death sentence.

The 53-year-old Castro, a former school bus driver, pleaded not guilty to an earlier indictment containing 329 charges.
