2 more Bundy sons among 6 due in US court in ranch standoff

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy are among six people due to make first appearances in federal court in Las Vegas on charges stemming from an armed confrontation with government agents two years ago.

Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and four men accused being with them both at the Bundy ranch in April 2014 and at an Oregon wildlife refuge this year are expected to plead not guilty and remain in custody.

They include Blaine Cooper, Brian Cavalier, Ryan Payne and Peter Santilli.

In all, 19 people face conspiracy, obstruction, weapon and assault on a federal officer charges in Las Vegas for stopping the U.S. Bureau of Land Management from rounding up Bundy cattle near Bunkerville.

The six are among 26 people also facing federal charges in the Oregon standoff.
