US man admits to raping, keeping woman in closet

A man accused of holding a woman captive for 10 days and repeatedly raping her has pleaded guilty to rape and kidnapping charges.
A prosecutor says William Manis pleaded guilty Friday in Butler County Common Pleas Court to two counts of kidnapping and nine counts of rape.
The Hamilton man earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity but was declared competent to stand trial.
A 22-year-old woman told police that Manis kept her locked in a closet with her hands and feet bound until she escaped by jumping out of a second-story window in November.
She also told police that Manis told her that he had intended to sell her as a sex slave but decided to keep her as a "pet."
