The Ohio attorney general says tests have confirmed that alleged kidnapper Ariel Castro is the father of a 6-year-old girl rescued from his house with three women this week.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office confirmed Castro’s paternity in a news release Friday. DeWine says a sample of Castro’s DNA was taken Thursday and forensic scientists worked through the night on the case.

The girl is the daughter of Amanda Berry, who authorities say was held for about a decade in Castro’s house in Cleveland along with Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight.

Castro is being held on $8 million bond.
