RICHFIELD -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced that his team of investigators has tested 172 pieces of evidence in the Ariel Castro case.
The evidence was removed from Castro's Seymour Avenue home, his car and garage.
Investigators have tested for DNA and for fingerprints. They have also tested firearms.
"You want as much evidence as you can," said DeWine."You want the jury to understand you've left no stone unturned."
The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office said DeWine's office has assisted in helping assemble the Castro puzzle.
DeWine said testing is ongoing but said it will be completed in time for the trial, which is scheduled to begin Aug. 5.
