Onil, Pedro Castro: Ariel Castro's brothers remain under Cleveland police protection, CNN says

CLEVELAND - Onil and Pedro Castro remain under the protection of Cleveland police in an unnamed and undisclosed location, according to a report by CNN's Martin Savidge from a Cleveland justice system source.

The two Castro brothers were not charged in the kidnapping case where three missing women were found alive in a Seymour Avenue home.

Each appeared in court Thursday morning for unrelated charges. Pedro pleaded no contest to an open container charge from 2011. He was fined $100 and given credit for four days spent in jail.

A judge dismissed drug abuse and open container charges from 2001 against Onil.

Ariel Castro is facing kidnapping and rape charges. He was arraigned in court and his bond was set at $8 million.

Savidge reports that Ariel Castro has been moved from the Cleveland City Jail to the Cuyahoga County Jail, according to his source.
