Laura Jungels and Christina Wright face preliminary charges of burglary and battery.

Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said deputies were called to a home in northeast Carroll County Saturday night. They found the two sisters had broken into their 80-year-old stepfather's home.

Investigators believe a verbal altercation turned physical and the sisters started to attack their stepfather.

The stepfather was taken to a Lafayette hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The sisters were also taken to a hospital to be checked out. Both have since posted bond and are due in court April 20.
