Ariel Castro charged with kidnapping and rape but brothers not facing trial

FORMER school bus driver Ariel Castro has been charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape in the case of three missing Ohio women freed after about a decade of captivity at his house.

Castro, 52, will be arraigned in court on Thursday, Cleveland city prosecutor Victor Perez announced at a press conference.

Ariel Castro's brothers Pedro, 54, and Onil, 50, were not charged with any crimes at this time, Perez said.

Michelle Knight, last seen in 2002, Amanda Berry, who disappeared in 2003, and Gina DeJesus missing since 2004, were all found alive on Monday night at Ariel Castro's residence after a neighbor helped Berry break open a door. Police said a child also found at the residence is believed to be Berry's daughter
