A recording of Cleveland police communications reveals the emotional moment when three women held captive for years were finally safe and sound. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight are believed to have been kidnapped separately and held for up to a decade. It's still a mystery how they were imprisoned so long in a modest two-storey house. Police said they'd been raped, starved and beaten by their abductor. Ariel Castro who owns the house where the women were held has been charged with kidnap and rape. He's also charged with the kidnap of Berry's six-year-old daughter who was born during her time in captivity. He's due to be arraigned on Thursday Police say Castro's two brothers who were also initially arrested as suspects have not been charged.
