Cleveland kidnap victim Michelle Knight on Dr. Phil


One of three missing women who escaped from a ramshackle Cleveland home after more than a decade in captivity is about to share her story on WHIO-TV's "Dr. Phil" show.

Knight will tell her story for the first time and appear on the "Dr. Phil" show Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. on WHIO TV, Channel 7.1 in a taped interview.

She was kidnapped in 2002. The producers of "Dr. Phil" said Knight "described the horrible conditions in the house" and revealed her physical, mental and sexual abuse. The show producers said Knight talked about being "tied up like a fish" and spending weeks chained and tortured in Ariel Castro's basement.

Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6, 2013 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help. Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself Sept. 3, just weeks into his prison sentence.
