Sole kidnapping and rape suspect ARIEL CASTRO charged in Cleveland.
“House of horrors” suspect Castro, 52, made his first appearance before a judge in Cleveland, Ohio Thursday morning on charges stemming from the horrifying abductions  of three young women, Amanda Berry , 27, Michelle Knight , 32, and Gina DeJesus , 23, who were held captive in his home for nearly a decade, RadarOnline said.
During the hearing — which lasted only minutes — the judge read the charges against Castro and asked him if he understood them.
Castro – with his hands tied together – signed the criminal complaint, but he did not enter a plea; that will come at another hearing within thirty days.
The prosecutor had asked for bond to be set at $5 million, but the judge chose to make it higher.
In his ruling, the judge issued a $2 million bond on each of the four charges against Castro, so the total bond comes to $8 million, ensuring he will remain behind bars.
Castro is charged with three counts of rape and 4 counts of kidnapping.
