The defense for a man accused of holding three women captive in his Cleveland home for about a decade is hinting a trial can be avoided with a plea if he escapes the death penalty. Defense attorney Craig Weintraub addressed the death penalty issue today after Ariel Castro pleaded not guilty to hundreds of charges, including rape and kidnapping. Weintraub says the defense is working to avoid an "unnecessary trial" involving the death penalty.
