An Ohio prosecutor says he may seek the death penalty against the man accused of keeping three women captive for about a decade for forcing them to suffer miscarriages.
Cuyahoga County prosecutor Timothy McGinty says Ohio law calls for the death penalty for the “most depraved criminals who commit aggravated murder during the course of a kidnapping.” McGinty says aggravated murder charges could be filed related to pregnancies terminated by force.
