Mother, Daughter From Canterbury Charged In US Capitol Riot

Two women from Canterbury are accused of illegally entering the US Capitol during a pro-Trump riot back in January.

Federal investigators say 56-year-old Jean Lavin and her 19-year-old daughter Carla Krzywicki climbed a bike rack used by rioters to get into the capitol.

Lavin carried a sign reading Trump Won. Both wore Trump hats.

They were recorded by security cameras walking through various lobbies in the capitol building for about a half an hour.

The mother and daughter told investigators that at one point they left the building and re-entered.

They said they went into the US Capitol during the riot out of curiosity.
