The prosecution in the trial of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere is showing evidence of his control of women in the group.

They produced 240 pages of text messages between one victim called "Camila" and Raniere. Prosecutors say the exchanges demonstrate Raniere's mind control over the women.

In the messages, Camila is told to lose weight and be available to Raniere day or night.

In this exchange, he scolds her for a weight of 120 pounds and says the extra weight hurts his heart.

Later, Raniere asks Camila to recruit new slave women to the group.
