BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A mother and daughter are charged with breaking into a home, stealing numerous items and beating the woman who lived there when she tried to prevent them from leaving.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1eBiqhE ) 54-year-old Kimberly Paulk and 31-year-old Cheri Schiedel were charged with felony aggravated burglary Tuesday in Justice Court. They remained jailed Wednesday - Paulk on $20,000 bond and Schiedel on $15,000 bond. Their District Court arraignments are set for Jan. 28.

Charging documents say the victim returned home Friday to find the defendants there. She said she was knocked to the ground, hit at least four times with a hammer and may have been hit with brass knuckles.

Police reviewed security footage from the residence that showed the two women ransacking the house and assaulting a woman who confronted them.
