CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek is tracking new developments in the Ariel Castro case.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered a competency evaluation for the man suspected of kidnapping three women and holding them captive for years in Cleveland.

Gallek has learned the evaluation will happen Thursday, and Castro will not have to be taken out of the Justice Center. Castro will be evaluated by the Court Psychiatric Clinic and that will be done in the Clinic Offices inside the Justice Center.

Sometimes, inmates get sent out to a psychiatric hospital for evaluations, but that is not being done in Castro's case.

A final report on the evaluation will be produced within 10 days.
