Castro's captives disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004. They were rescued from Castro's house May 6 when Berry broke through a screen door and called 911.

Investigators said the women were bound, repeatedly raped and deprived of food and bathroom facilities.

The dispatcher who took Berry's call was disciplined Friday for failing to stay on the line with her until police arrived.
