Michelle Knight On Cleveland Kidnapping: 'I Was Tied Up Like A Fish'

Nov 04, 2013 | Updated Nov 04, 2013

One of three women who survived a decade of captivity in a Cleveland home has revealed that she was bound with an extension cord and left hanging like an "ornament on the wall."

"I was tied up like a fish," Michelle Knight said in a taped interview with Dr. Phil. Knight, 32, also described how her captor, Ariel Castro, would leave her alone for multi-day stretches in his basement without food or water.

"That's the only way i can describe it," she tells Dr. Phil.

Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped on May 6 when Berry forced her way out and called for help. Castro later pleaded guilty to 937 counts including aggravated murder, kidnapping, rape and assault and was sentenced to life in prison. Weeks later, on Sept. 3, he was found hanging in his cell.

The complete Michelle Knight interview will air Tuesday and Wednesday on the "Dr. Phil" show.
