Life in captivity for Cleveland women

An FBI agent tells CNN's Randi Kaye that Michelle Knight was beaten with hand weights while held captive for more than a decade in Ariel Castro's house. But she doesn't need facial reconstruction as previously reported.

The agent also clarified reports about a hierarchy among the women when they were in captivity. At the hospital they were walking around together and seemed equally concerned about each other.

The agent also mentioned that the only reason Gina DeJesus and Knight didn't follow Amanda Berry out of the house the day she escaped was because they feared Castro, and not because they didn't trust Berry.

Castro's attorneys spoke out about him on Wednesday. Craig Weintraub says the portrayal of his client as a monster doesn't correlate with the man he met with for a few hours at the county jail. The suspect plans to plead not guilty.
