KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) - Two women accused of shooting at homeless people in OTR with a BB gun are now facing charges in Kenton County.

Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders says the women were indicted Thursday on charges of tampering with physical evidence.

He alleges after the shootings Brittany and Kelsey Hopper traveled back to Kentucky to hide out. After seeing pictures of themselves and their car on the news, Cincinnati police say the women attempted to conceal the car by repainting it.

“They took it upon themselves it tamper with physical evidence, and that is what they were indicted for today,” Sanders said.

Brittany Hopper is still in custody in the Hamilton County Justice Center and is set to be sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to one count of misdemeanor assault following the June 3 incident in OTR. Kelsey is out on bail.
