CNN Breaking News

Cleveland kidnapping victim Michelle Knight told police she was pregnant multiple times while being held captive and that Ariel Castro would starve her, feed her rotten food, punch her and kick her down stairs, which resulted in the termination of her pregnancies, an officer testified at Castro's sentencing hearing today.

Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus told police they were tied up with extension cords, duct tape, plastic ties and chains after their abduction, Detective Andrew Harasimchuk testified.

The victims also said they had helmets placed on their heads before being sexually assaulted.

The sentencing phase began today for Castro, who confessed to imprisoning and raping the three women in his Cleveland home. He attempted to apologize in court today and the judge told him he would be able to speak later.
