MADISON (WKOW) -- The two women accused of attacking Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) in June are headed for trial.

Court records show a judge found there's enough probable cause to send Samantha Hamer and Kerida O'Reilly to trial. Hamer and O'Reilly are each charged with Felony Battery.

Authorities say the women attacked Carpenter after he took video of protesters outside the state capitol
