“They are here against their will because they committed the mistake of getting in the car of a complete stranger” wrote the former school bus driver, who is currently in prison under surveillance in order to prevent a possible suicide.
The prosecution filed more complaints against Ariel Castro, main suspect in the kidnapping of Amanda Berry, 27 years old; Gina DeJesus, 22; and Michelle Knight, 32, he stated that he hit them and used them in “any self-gratifying manner he saw fit”.
His two brothers, who were also arrested, were later acquitted of involvement in the case of kidnapping, and granted them freedom.
Meanwhile, Timothy McGinty, Prosecutor of Cuyahoga County, Cleveland, said that it’s been analyzed the possibility to request the death penalty for Ariel Castro, as the Ohio State allows to order that sentence to the “most depraved criminals who commit a murder with aggravating circumstances in the course of a kidnapping”.
