Ariel Castro in Court for Pretrial

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:48 AM EDT
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Attorneys for a Cleveland man accused of holding three
women captive in his home for more than a decade have told a judge that
plea negotiations in the case are still ongoing.

As in previous
court appearances, 53-year-old Ariel Castro was dressed in an orange
jail outfit and kept his chin tucked to his chest for most of the brief
hearing Wednesday morning.

Castro has pleaded not guilty to nearly 1,000 counts of kidnap, rape and other crimes.

Castro's
attorneys complained to Judge Michael Russo that they are having
trouble getting prepared for the trial, which is tentatively scheduled
for Aug. 5.

They say prosecutors have been slow to turn over evidence, an accusation denied by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty.
