Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro was sentenced to life in prison plus a 1000 years with no chance of parole today for kidnapping three women and holding them captive for a decade in his Ohio home.

Judge Michael Russo imposed the hefty sentence for an aggravated murder charge laid after Castro forcibly terminated the pregnancies of one of his captives.

He also imposed stiff penalties for hundreds of others charges including rape and kidnapping.
