Ariel Castro's Cleveland home is no more.

The former house of the man convicted last month of holding three young women captive for more than a decade was demolished on Wednesday. It took just over an hour to demolish the house, according to reports.

Castro, 53, was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years last month after pleading guilty to 937 charges in connection with the kidnapping of three women. The women were rescued in May.
