(NBC News) An Ohio prosecutor vowed Thursday to pursue murder charges against the Cleveland kidnapping suspect for terminating the pregnancies of the women he is accused of holding captive for a decade.

The prosecutor, Timothy McGinty of Cuyahoga County, also said that he would consider seeking the death penalty.

The suspect, Ariel Castro, is already charged with four counts of kidnapping - three for the women he is accused of abducting and one for a baby that one of the women bore in captivity.

McGinty said he would seek charges for each act of sexual violence, rape, kidnapping, assault and "each act of aggravated murder he committed by terminating pregnancies that the offender perpetuated against the hostages during this decade-long ordeal."
