"We have an overwhelming volume of evidence to prove each and every charge" against Phillip Garrido, the prosecutor said.

In addition, information has been uncovered that could mitigate the guilt of his wife and co-defendant Nancy Dugard, El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson said during a court hearing.

Stephen Tapson, the court-appointed lawyer who represents Nancy Garrido, has said he plans to argue that his client was under her husband's control when Dugard was abducted from her South Lake Tahoe street in 1991, then raped and held captive for 18 years.

Phillip Garrido allegedly fathered two children with Dugard, the first when she was only 14.

The couple has pleaded not guilty to rape and kidnapping. Dugard is currently living with her mother in a secret location.
