Cleveland Suspect’s Daughter in Prison for Cutting Baby’s Throat


Emily Castro

FORT WAYNE, Indiana — The daughter of Ariel Castro, the primary suspect in the abduction of three women found alive this week, is serving a 25-year sentence in an Indiana prison for the attempted murder of her baby six years ago.

A judge found Emily Castro guilty but mentally ill of cutting her 11-month-old daughter four times on the neck in April 2007.

Legal documents state that on April 4, 2007, Castro, 19 at the time, was upset that her boyfriend — the baby’s father — had moved out of the family’s home in Fort Wayne.

She took the baby into a garage and cut her neck four times with a knife.
