A 35-year-old Houston man who held a woman captive in a house while beating and torturing her until she gave him money and signed over the title to her Mercedes-Benz has been sentenced to 40 years in prison, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“Domestic violence can take many different forms, which is why we take these cases so seriously,” Ogg said. “This man preys on women and when they don’t do what he wants, the violence escalates. We are glad this woman survived her ordeal and got justice.”
Andrew R. Castillo, 35, was convicted by a Harris County jury and sentenced to 40 years in prison earlier this month after six days of trial for brutally beating and burning a 42-year-old woman he had been in a relationship with before the attack.
