PAPILLION — An 18-year-old woman and her boyfriend have been arrested on suspicion of trying to kill her father.

According to court documents, Gabriella Laws and her 18-year-old boyfriend, Joshua Fithian were both arrested last week in connection with the Jan. 17 attack in Papillion. Officials said Fithian assaulted Laws' father with a mallet, but the man survived.
