CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland man accused of holding three women captive in his home for over a decade has pleaded not guilty to additional charges.
An expanded indictment charges Ariel Castro with 512 counts of kidnapping and 446 counts of rape, among other crimes.
Castro was arrested in May after the women escaped to freedom.
Three teenage girls are safe Thursday morning after escaping from a north county home where they were being forced to work as prostitutes.
Police say two of the teens escaped through a bedroom window while the man accused of holding them slept. They called for help a few blocks away, telling police they didn't want to go far, because another teen, a 16 year old girl, was still being held in the home. Police found her when they arrested Anton Morris.
St. Louis County prosecutors have charged Morris with several crimes, including sexual trafficking of a child. He's jailed on a 100-thousand dollar bond.
