Prosecutors say the two women approached Mr. Whitmore and began beating him with their hands and feet, using brass knuckles on June 13 and left the scene after he fell to the ground. No motive has been declared and the investigation is ongoing. Gomez has a second degree robbery conviction from 2009 that will play a part in her charges.
Both women have pleaded not-guilty and remain in custody with million dollar bonds. If found guilty, they could receive life without the possibility of parole.
