Late Wednesday, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty filed what he intends to use regarding Ariel Castro sentencing on Thursday.

The document details how each one of the victims — Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — was lured to Castro’s house, either with a promise of a ride, a visit with Castro’s daughter or, in Knight’s case, a puppy for her son.

Once in the house, McGinty said Castro used both physical and mental restraints on the girls to control them.

He would keep them chained and locked in the upstairs rooms or subject them to “…the cold of the basement and the heat of the attic as punishment techniques.”

McGinty said Castro kept a gun “…and threatened to shoot the captives if they ever tried to escape.”

Castro also told his captives that “he had other victims and that some of them made it home but that others had not,” the document reads.
