Prosecutors could purse death penalty in Cleveland captive case

CLEVELAND (AP) - One of the three Cleveland women held captive in a home for years says her five pregnancies ended after her captor repeatedly punched her in the stomach and starved her for at least two weeks.

Prosecutors say they may seek the death penalty against suspect Ariel Castro for pregnancies that were terminated by force.

Castro is being held on $8 million bail under suicide watch.
