COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Cleveland man heads back to court next week after hundreds of charges were added to accusations he held three women captive in his home for a decade and raped them.

One of the most chilling new allegations is that Ariel Castro raped one of the women on Christmas Day 2006, the same day a girl he fathered with another of the women was born.

The 977-count indictment filed Friday against Castro includes rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder charges, including accusations Castro starved and punched one of the women while she was pregnant until she miscarried.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty says his office has yet to decide whether to make the case eligible for a death sentence.

The 53-year-old Castro pleaded not guilty to an earlier indictment.
