CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland house where three women were imprisoned and raped for about a decade will be torn down this week.

The electricity was turned off at Ariel Castro's home on Seymour Avenue on Monday after his family and friends removed personal items from it, including photographs and musical instruments.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the Cuyahoga Land Bank acquired the home last week and plans to demolish it beginning Wednesday.

A contractor is tearing down the home at no cost. Plans for what will replace the house on the site haven't been made public.

The 53-year-old Castro was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to hundreds of charges related to the kidnapping and rapes of the women.
