A Hamilton grand jury has indicted four women in connection with the stripping, beating and robbery of two women last month in Winton Terrace.

Cell phone video recorded during the incident shows two women stripped naked, beaten and robbed. After the incident, the video was posted on Facebook.

Kianna McMeans, Geawnna Higgins, Lashawanda Jones, Jakeda Phillips, were each indicted on two counts of aggravated robbery and robbery.

The alleged victims were sisters between the ages of 20 and 21. They were recovering from their injuries last week.
