Cleveland (AP) - A Cleveland man is due in court today on charges he held three women captive in his home for a decade while raping them.

Fifty-two-year-old Ariel Castro faces more than 300 counts following an indictment charging him with murder, kidnapping and rape.

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.

Castro's attorneys have said he plans to plead not guilty.
