WINCHESTER -- Two more people involved in a 2004 robbery that left a man near death have been indicted by a Frederick County Circuit Court grand jury.
Authorities allege Holly Lynn Wanningman and Julianne Ann Lindsay, whose ages and addresses were unavailable Friday, conspired to rob Richard Allen Fowler in 2004 at the Burger King where they worked.
Their alleged accomplice, Brett Lee Cook, 20, of 252 Browns Lane, pleaded guilty in July to beating Fowler with a baseball bat and taking $2,000 in a bank deposit bag from him as he closed the restaurant on Sept. 27, 2004.
Fowler's injuries were so severe, doctors had to remove part of his skull, authorities have said. Fowler now lives in an in-house care facility in Tennessee.
According to Frederick County Sheriff's Office investigator K.C. Bohrer, both Lindsay and Wanningman were employed at the restaurant at the time. Lindsay continued to work there as an assistant manager up until several months ago, Bohrer said.
"They were all friends and acquaintances," Bohrer said.
Neither had been arrested as of Friday afternoon, Bohrer said.
While the two women participated in the robbery, they only witnessed the beating, Bohrer said.
Both women have been charged with armed robbery, malicious aggravated wounding and conspiracy to commit a felony.
A criminal file accompanying the charges had not been completed Friday afternoon.
