Two men accused of beating their roommate, because he allegedly sexually assaulted two young girls, both pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday.
Christopher Garrett and Moses Laporte are charged with attempted murder and second and third degree assault.
Police say the men beat their roommate, Mark Tabor, in retaliation.
Tabor is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, among other serious charges for allegedly attacking the sisters on August 11th.
All three are behind bars in the Jackson County Jail.
