CLEVELAND (AP) — One of the three women help captive for nearly a decade in a Cleveland house before escaping last year says she forgives the man who kidnapped and tortured her all those years.

Michelle Knight, interviewed Monday on NBC's "Today" show, says Ariel Castro deserves forgiveness because she'd want to be forgiven if she did wrong, and in her words, "that's the way of life."

Tuesday is the anniversary of the escape from the house by Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus.

Knight — who has a book coming out Tuesday — says she's a singer who just recorded a song, and she's also training to be a boxer.

The 53-year-old Castro pleaded guilty in August and committed suicide in prison.
