CLEVELAND - Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus spoke out again about the horror they endured at the hands of Ariel Castro, Friday night.

They appeared on the Greta Van Susteren show on the Fox News Network.
Berry and DeJesus recounted their story from beginning to end, how Castro started assaulting them on the very first day and how the attacks never stopped.

They described in graphic detail how they were shackled day after day. They spoke of the release they felt on the day they managed to escape.

Van Susteren asked them how they felt when they learned Castro hanged himself in prison.

DeJesus said, "I think he was a coward. He took the easy way out." Berry responded, "I just couldn't believe it. Like, he was there not even a month and he couldn't deal with what he put us through for ten years."

Berry and DeJesus collaborated to tell their story in a newly released book called "Hope, A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland."

Berry, DeJesus and Michelle Knight were held captive by Ariel Castro for more than a decade. They escaped from his Seymour Avenue home on May 6, 2013.

Knight released her book, “Finding Me,” last year.
