MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Two sisters have been arrested and charged with first degree burglary after the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office said they broke into a man’s trailer and beat him.

Deputies say Vacoreia Pritchett, 28, and Valandra Pritchett, 33, committed the crime because they thought the man had something to do with the death of Vicki Pritchett, their mother.

Investigators say the crime occurred the night Vicki Pritchett’s body was found in a wooded area in Grand Bay after she had been missing for eight days.

While MCSO detectives were investigating the scene where the body was located, a search party made up of friends and family members of Vikki Pritchett went to the home of a neighbor who they believed to be involved with Vikki Pritchett’s death, according to the sheriff’s office. Authorities said that when the group arrived at the home, they forced open the door and assaulted the victim.

The victim suffered fractured ribs, fractured orbital, fractured jaw, facial lacerations and a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage of the left eye, according to authorities.

The sheriff’s office said there is no evidence the man had anything to do with Vicki Pritchett’s death and there is no evidence of foul play in her death, according to the autopsy report.

Officials said they are still investigating the incident and more arrest could occur.
