Convcition in Closet Captive Case
A man who held a woman captive for 10 days in a closet and repeatedly raped her pleaded guilty to charges in Hamilton, Ohio. William Manis admits to kidnapping and rape after he had tried to say he was insane and incompetent to stand trial. The 22 year-old victim told authorities Manis kept her locked in the closet with her hands and feet bound until she escaped by jumping out a second-floor window. She says Manis told her he intended to sell her as a sex slave but decided to keep her as a "pet."
