  Original Published: 8/1/2013  The disturbing details describing the captivity of  three Cleveland women was revealed Thursday at the sentencing hearing of Ariel Castro.   Castro pleaded guilty last week to 937 charges, including rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder, in the disappearances of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.    Castro held the women against their will inside his Seymour Avenue home for a decade.    Court documents detail how Castro physically, mentally and sexually abused the victims.    Documents tell about the birth of Amanda Berry's daughter by Castro on Christmas Day in 2006.    Berry and her daughter did not receive any medical treatment.     The women were given one meal a day and could only shower one or two times a week.    The women all kept dairies detailing the abuse they endured.    The prosecution has a list of witnesses and evidence that is being presented at the hearing.    Castro faces life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 1,000 years in prison.
