Kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro will be arraigned Wednesday morning in front of Judge Deena R. Calabrese. He is expected to appear in court. 

Castro was indicted Friday on 329 criminal charges for holding Michelle Knight, Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry for years against their will. Prosecutors say Castro also sexually assaulted the women. Amanda gave birth to his daughter, now 6, while in captivity.

The three women were rescued from the Seymour Avenue home on May 6. 

Also on Monday, FBI agents were back at Castro's home. The agents led Prosecutors around the inside of the home to get an up close look at what life was like for the kidnapped women.

The FBI and Prosecutors are expected to return to the home again on Tuesday and Wednesday.  
 
The search warrants have been sealed, which means we can't see what investigators have taken. But 19 Action News has obtained a copy of a court order sealing the search warrants -- it shows what has been searched.
 
So far, seven different search warrants have been filed for Castro's home alone. 
 
Investigators have also demanded records of Castro's on Facebook page. This, in addition to looking into what Castro has searched on Google and Yahoo.
 
Records have also been requested from three cell phones and wireless accounts. Investigators have searched three vehicles, Ariel Castro's property in jail and taken his DNA.  
Castro is currently jailed on $8M bond.
