**Chinese Official Drowned During Corruption Questioning: State Media**
Chinese officials say a Communist Party member was drowned after having his head held under water by investigators who were trying to get him to confess to corruption.
State media say six Communist Party graft investigators will soon stand trial on intentional injury charges related to the death of Yu Qiyi, an engineer at the Wenzhou Industry Investment Group.
Officials believe the investigators repeatedly dunked the 42-year-old Yu's head in a tub of icy water in April in an attempt to get him to confess to suspected crimes related to a land deal.
Yu died shortly after being taken to the hospital. His death was originally ruled an accident. But an autopsy later revealed that he died because of respiratory failure.
His relatives have published pictures online showing what they say are Yu's tortured body, which was covered in bruises. His wife, Wu Qian, told state media that he also lost significant weight during his 38 days in detention.
** US Kidnapper of Three Women Found Dead in Cell**
Prison officials in Ohio say the man who held three women captive for over a decade has been found dead.
Ariel Castro was found hanging in his prison cell late Tuesday night. Officials say the 53-year-old Castro was taken to nearby hospital for emergency treatment, where he was pronounced dead.
The former school bus driver was arrested in May after one of his female captives escaped from his Cleveland home and ran to neighbors for help. Authorities say he kidnapped the women separately between 2002 and 2004, and raped them repeatedly during their captivity. One of the women gave birth to Castro's daughter.
Castro pleaded guilty last month to over 900 criminal charges, including kidnapping and rape.
Castro was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
