CLEVELAND (AP) — The FBI says it did not recover human remains in its search of a Cleveland house where a man is accused of holding three women captive for a decade.

FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson says investigators have for now concluded their search at the house where the women were found earlier this week.

Anderson said Friday that agents took more than 200 items from the house, though she wouldn't discuss what was found.

Prosecutors said Thursday they may seek the death penalty against suspect Ariel Castro. Police say he impregnated one of his captives at least five times and made her miscarry by starving her and beating her.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says tests have confirmed that Castro is the father of a 6-year-old girl rescued from the house. One of the captive women is the girl's mother.
