(NEWSER) – Michelle Knight offered heartbreaking testimony today at Ariel Castro's sentencing hearing, describing how much she missed her son during her 11-year ordeal. "I cried every night. I was so alone. I worried what would happen to me and the other girls every day," she said, according to CNN. "You took 11 years of my life away. ... I spent 11 years in hell. Now, your hell is just beginning." Surprisingly, she also said she "can forgive" Castro, though she "will never forget." But, she said, "I will live on" and "overcome what happened."
