"Dr. Phil" Show Has Freed Cleveland Kidnap Victim


UPDATED: Saturday November 2, 2013 6:12 PM

One of the three women who escaped to freedom from a decade as kidnap-rape victims in a Cleveland house is about to share her story.

Michelle Knight, who was held longest, will appear on the "Dr. Phil" show Tuesday and Wednesday in a taped interview.

The show says Knight "describes the horrible conditions in the house" and reveals her physical, mental and sexual abuse.

The show says one example of the abuse was being "tied up like a fish" and spending weeks chained and tortured in the basement.

Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help.

Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hung himself Sept. 3, just weeks into his sentence.
