Prosecutors charge 4 more in Ohio Amish attacks

Prosecutors charge additional 4 women in Ohio Amish beard-cutting attacks, add new allegations By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' Federal prosecutors have charged an additional four women with involvement in beard-cutting attacks on fellow Amish in Ohio.

The charges also add new allegations that suspects hid or tried to destroy evidence, including a disposable camera, shears and a bag of hair from the victims.

The indictment filed late Wednesday in federal court in Cleveland also charges alleged ringleader Sam Mullet Jr. with lying to federal agents during their investigation.

The new allegations bring to 16 the number of people charged in the attacks on other Amish last year. The dozen previous defendants have pleaded not guilty.
