CLEVELAND---A man accused of holding
three women captive in his home for about
a decade pleaded not guilty yesterday, and
the defence hinted that a trial can be avoided
with a plea if he escapes the death penal-
ty.Attorney Craig Weintraub addressed the
death penalty issue after his client, 52-year-
old Ariel Castro, pleaded not guilty to hun-
dreds of charges including rape and kidnap-
Castro, dressed in an orange jail outfit with
his hands and ankles shackled, kept his chin
tucked on his chest through the brief court
appearance. He didn t speak or glance at his
two attorneys standing by his side.
Weintraub said the defence was working
to avoid an "unnecessary trial" involving the
death penalty. Charges he faces involving an
alleged forced miscarriage don t include death
penalty specifications, but the prosecutor
says that s under review.
A statement issued on behalf of the women
said days like the arraignment "are not easy"
and added: "We are hopeful for a just and
prompt resolution. We have great faith in
the prosecutor s office and the court."
The grand jury charged Castro with two
counts of aggravated murder related to one
act, saying he purposely caused the unlawful
termination of one of the women s preg-
nancies. He also was indicted on 139 counts
of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping, seven
counts of gross sexual imposition, three
counts of felonious assault and one count
of possession of criminal tools.
News that the women had been found
alive electrified the Cleveland area, where
two of the victims were household names
after years of searches, publicity and vigils.
But elation soon turned to shock as allegations
about their treatment began to emerge.
The indictment alleges Castro repeatedly
restrained the women, sometimes chaining
them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom
heater or inside a van. It says one of the
women tried to escape and he assaulted her
with a vacuum cord around her neck.
Later, he moved them to upstairs rooms
where they were kept as virtual prisoners,
according to investigators.
All the while, Castro continued driving a
school bus and playing bass in local bands,
with fellow musicians saying they never sus-
pected a thing. He was fired as a bus driver
last fall after leaving his bus unattended for
Castro has been held on $8 million bail.
Last week he was taken off suicide prevention
watch in jail. Cuyahoga County jail logs show
him spending most of his time sleeping, lying
on his bunk, watching TV and occasionally
Castro was arrested May 6, shortly after
one of the women broke through a door and
yelled to neighbours for help.
She told a police dispatcher in a dramatic
police call: "Help me. I m Amanda Berry.
I ve been kidnapped, and I ve been missing
for ten years, and I m, I m here, I m free
The women---Berry, Gina DeJesus and
Michelle Knight---disappeared separately
between 2002 and 2004, when they were
14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had
accepted a ride from Castro, who remained
friends with DeJesus family and even attend-
ed vigils over the years marking her disap-
The women haven t spoken publicly since
their rescue. (AP)
