Lawyers discuss plea deal in Ariel Castro kidnapping case

For the second time in as many weeks the Cleveland kidnapping suspect appeared before a judge.

Shackled and dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit, Ariel Castro kept his head down and his eyes closed as his attorneys told the court they are discussing possible plea deals.

His demeanor was similar last week when he pleaded not guilty to a 977 count indictment for allegedly holding Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus captive for nearly a decade.

OutFront: Dr. Jeff Gardere a clinical psychologist and Patti Wood, a body language expert.
