Cleveland Councilman Bill Cummins says a police report states Michelle Knight was threatened with her life if Amanda Berry's baby didn't survive birth. She apparently was forced to assist with delivering the baby six years ago.
The women, missing for years, were found Monday in a Cleveland house with another woman who disappeared in the area named Gina DeJesus. School bus driver Ariel Castro is charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape.
Cummins says the report includes details about at least one of the women having multiple miscarriages due to the "savage" physical duress she was put under as a means of abortion.
