Two brothers of Ohio kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro said they fear people will always believe they were involved.
Pedro and Onil Castro were initially arrested as suspects, but investigators determined they had no knowledge of the abductions or that the women were being held captive.
During an interview with CNN, Onil Castro said, "The people out there that know me, they know that Onil Castro is not that person and has nothing to do with that - would never even think of something like that".
Pedro Castro echoed his brothers comments, saying, "If I knew, I would have reported it - brother or no brother".
Two brothers of the man accused of kidnapping and raping three teenagers in the US state of Ohio have said they hope he suffers in jail.
The man accused of kidnapping three Ohio women could face the death penalty if he is found guilty of new charges prosecutors may bring.
Ariel Castro has been charged with four counts of kidnapping and three of rape after three Ohio women were held captive for nearly a decade.
