The defence team for a man accused of keeping three women in captivity for about a decade in Cleveland, Ohio, has said that the suspect would plead not guilty to all charges.

Ariel Castro's attorneys say the public has been too quick to judge their client.

Prosecutors are considering additional charges for Castro, including aggravated murder, for allegedly beating one of the women in the abdomen while pregnant, forcing her to miscarry.
