CLEVELAND (AP) -- A Cleveland man has pleaded not guilty to holding three women captive in his home for a decade and raping them.
Fifty-two-year-old Ariel Castro was arraigned Wednesday on an indictment charging him with murder, kidnapping and rape in more than 300 counts.
The murder charge involves Castro's allegedly starving and punching a pregnant woman in captivity until she miscarried.
A Cuyahoga County grand jury returned the indictment Friday against the former Cleveland school bus driver, who was fired last fall.
His $8 million dollar bond was continued.
