Fifty-two year-old Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro, pictured above, has been charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape. In each case, the judge has set his bond at $2 million each.
Ariel held Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Amanda Berry in his home at 2207 Seymour Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio for over a decade. In their horrific lives, we’ve learned that Ariel baited the women into attempting to leave the house, only meaning to test them and beat them if they tried to escape.
It was a heartwarming day when Charles Ramsey made the discovery and helped Amanda and the other ladies escape. Kudos to him on a job well done.
Above, Ariel is seen at his arraignment, trying to cover his face. Stay tuned for more updates as they are made available.

Soap legend and Corbin Bernsen’s mother Jeanne Cooper died this morning at the age of 84. News came from Bernsen himself about two hours ago via his Twitter account: @corbinbernsen “Mom passed this morning. She was in peace and without fear. U all have been incredible in your love. In her name share it 2 day with others.”
Cooper is best known for her Emmy Award winning role as Katherine Chancellor on the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless”, from 1973 to 2013. She was recently ill due to an undisclosed infection and was in and out of the hospital. Bernsen had been keeping fans up to date on her condition through Twitter and Facebook, where he spoke more of her passing.
He said, “I’ll go one last time now for a gentle kiss a final farewell for this lifetime. She has been a blaze her entire life, that beacon, that boxer I spoke of earlier. She went the full twelve rounds and by unanimous decision… won! And while her light finally gave into the wind that gives flight to all our journeys, there will always be a glimmer left behind by what she stood for. I will speak about that more in coming days, months I suppose. I will certainly dedicate what remains of my life to continue her purpose of honesty, equality, humility, empathy and love.”
Cause of death is unknown at this time.

Paris Hilton took to her twitter page hours ago to inform her followers of an impending surgery.
“Getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow. So scared! Hope it doesn’t hurt too much & hope I don’t end up having chipmunk cheeks!”
This little nugget of information should not be this amusing, but considering this is the woman who thought that Wal-Mart sold walls, one has to wonder if she is worried about losing her “wisdom”. Poor thing.
Via Gawker, we’ve learned that the Cleveland hero who saved Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus does not want the reward money:
On if he’s a hero
No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you. We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way. It’s just that you got to put that – being a coward, and I don’t want to get in nobody’s business. You got to put that away for a minute.
On if he should get the reward money
I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, you been following me since last night, you know I got a job anyway. Just went picked it up, paycheck. What that address say? [...] 2203 Seymour. Where are them girls living? Right next door to this paycheck. So yes, take that reward and give it to—that little girl.
