PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted two women on charges of assault with intent to commit murder, alleging they attacked a man and tried to set him on fire in Eagle Butte (BYOOT).

The indictment filed Tuesday also charges Lisa Lone Eagle and Kendra Belt with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in bodily injury related to the Sept. 6 attack of Thomas Bennett on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

Prosecutors say Lone Eagle and Belt assaulted Bennett with kicks and a metal sledgehammer head and choked him before covering him with a blanket, pouring fuel on it and attempting to light it on fire.

Court records did not list attorneys for Lone Eagle or Belt.
