CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Michelle Knight, the woman held captive for 11 years by a Cleveland man who abducted and sexually abused her, arrived in court on Thursday at the sentencing hearing for former school bus driver Ariel Castro.

Castro was sitting at the front of the courtroom when Knight arrived. Local media have reported that she will testify personally at the hearing where he is expected to be sentenced to life in prison.
