TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sophia and Fernando Richter are scheduled for arraignment one week from today, according to Pima County Superior Court documents.

The arraignment indicates an indictment on charges related to the alleged abuse and imprisonment of Sophia's 12, 13 and 17-year-old daughters.

Police said the two younger girls escaped from the family's midtown home and ran to a neighbor's house for help.

They said Sophia Richter and the girls' step father Fernando kept the children in dungeon-like isolation for up to two years.
