Two people were charged in Yakima County Superior Court on Thursday in connection with the assault of 78 year old Yakima real estate agent Vernon Holbrook.

Holbrook remains in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle today. 38 year old Luis Gomez Monges and 23 year old Adriana Mendez were both charged with attempted first degree murder and first degree assault.

The suspects took off, but Holbrook never returned to work leaving co-workers and his family nervous. Deputies said they found the victim lying in a pool of blood with his throat slit.

He was flown to Harborview Medical Center where he remains today. Both are being held in the Yakima County jail. bail has been set at $750,000 each.
