BECKLEY (WVVA) - A pair of men were in court Thursday morning after being accused of beating an elderly man in Raleigh County.

Jason Brent Wickline, 34, and Bryan Phillip Bolt, 27 -- both of Beckley -- are charged with malicious wounding and conspiracy to commit a felony in connection with the beating of an 89-year-old Eugene Hilbert in Beckley.

Authorities say the suspects punched and stomped Hilbert, leaving him with a cut over his eye, a bloody eye, possible broken nose, busted and cut lip and marks on his chest.

Hilbert was transported to Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital for treatment.

Wickline and Bolt are being held on $100,000 bond each.

Wickline was also on probation for previous unrelated charges.
