Although it's not confirmed if any of Castro's three victims will be in the court, CNN is reporting Michelle Knight is expected to attend the hearing.

WKYC's Stephanie Coueignoux was in the courtroom before 8 a.m. and noticed four seats reserved for witnesses.

EXPANDED COVERAGE | Ariel Castro case

Last week, Castro pleaded guilty to more than 900 counts against him in the case of Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus -- three women he kidnapped and held captive in his Seymour Avenue home for years.

As part of his plea agreement, Castro will be spared the death penalty. Instead, he faces life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, plus 1,000 years.

Castro was arrested in May shortly after Berry escaped the home and called for help.

The Seymour Avenue home where the terror took place will be demolished soon.
