CLEVELAND (AP) — Prosecutors have unveiled a model of the Cleveland house where convicted kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro imprisoned three women for a decade.
The model was wheeled into a Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County courtroom Thursday ahead of Castro's sentencing on his guilty plea last week to 937 counts, including aggravated murder, kidnapping and rape.
The model is a replica of the house in a blue-collar west side Cleveland neighborhood where investigators say Castro imprisoned the women, often with chains, after abducting them from nearby streets between 2002 and 2004.
Castro's plea deal includes a sentence of life in prison plus 1,000 years.
Judge Michael Russo is expected to conduct a lengthy sentencing hearing that will include evidence from prosecutors about Castro's crimes along with a statement from Castro himself.
