CLEVELAND (AP) - One of the victims of convicted Cleveland kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro says at his sentencing hearing that she cried every night and that her years in captivity and "turned into eternity."

Michelle Knight's appearance is the first time she's been seen publicly since her rescue from the house where she was held captive for 10 years.

She says she spent 11 years in hell and that Castro's hell is now beginning.

The 32-year-old Knight was the first woman abducted by Ariel Castro in 2002 after he lured her into his house with the promise of a puppy for her son.

Castro has pleaded guilty to charges that he repeatedly raped Knight and two other victims, and also forced Knight to miscarry after he impregnated her.
