According to the Ohio attorney general, DNA testing confirms that Ariel Castro, the alleged monster at the center of the Cleveland kidnappings, is indeed the father of 6-year-old Jocelyn, believed to be the child of abductee Amanda Berry.
Castro is charged with four counts of kidnapping, one of which is for the child, who was born in captivity. Abductee Michelle Knight says Castro forced her to deliver Berry’s baby, inside a small inflatable swimming pool inside the home, and threatened to kill Knight if the baby did not survive. Knight says she administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to keep the child alive.
Knight says she was impregnated five times by Castro, and that he induced miscarriages by starving Knight and punching her in the belly. Castro may face aggravated murder charges for killing unborn children.
