BILLINGS, Mont. -

Two Billings women who were attacked in their homes last year testified about their ordeals during the rape, kidnapping and robbery trial of Toby Griego.

Both women testified Tuesday that they awakened to a man in their bedroom. The first woman said she was repeatedly raped and repeatedly forced to bathe during a two-hour assault early on Jan. 27, 2013.

The second woman said her attacker bound her and tried to rape her on April 25, but she was able to get away.

Both women testified that pictures recovered from Griego's cellphone were taken at their residences and they heard a clicking sound like a camera as they were being assaulted.

Defense attorneys argued that neither woman got a good look at her attacker, raising doubts that Griego was responsible.
