Ariel Castro has been charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape after three missing women were found in his home, according to prosecutor Victor Perez. Two other men—Castro’s brothers—are in custody, but have not yet been charged, because there is no evidence that they were involved. The details of the kidnapped women’s confinement have not been released, but police say they were bound with ropes and chains, were subjected to sexual and psychological abuse, and suffered miscarriages.
