An Oct. 4 trial date has been set for two Arizona women charged with burglarizing a mosque in Tempe.

Tahnee Gonzales and Elizabeth Dauenhauer have previously pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary and aggravated criminal damage stemming from a March 4 incident at the Islamic Community Center in Tempe.

Gonzales and Dauenhauer filmed themselves as they removed fliers and Qurans from shelves, bins and bulletin boards in a fenced-in courtyard behind the mosque. In the video, the two women, who were with their children, referred to Muslims as devil worshipers, likened them to animals, and made sexually derogatory comments about them.

The video was posted on Gonzales' social media account.
