(CLEVELAND) - Prosecutors say a Cleveland man accused of holding three women captive for a decade has been indicted on 329 charges including kidnapping and rape.

A Cuyahoga County grand jury returned the indictment Friday against Ariel Castro, a former school bus driver fired last fall.

The grand jury charged Castro with two counts of aggravated murder related to one act, saying he purposely caused the unlawful termination of a pregnancy.

Castro is accused of kidnapping Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight and holding them captive along with a 6-year-old girl he fathered with Berry.

He also was indicted on charges including 139 counts of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping and multiple counts of gross sexual imposition and felonious assault.

Castro's attorneys have said he would plead not guilty to any indictment.
