Court Decides Son Of Nevada Rancher Bundy To Stay In Custody

PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge in Arizona decided that an adult son of jailed Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy should remain in custody pending his transfer to Las Vegas to face conspiracy, assault on a federal officer and other charges.

Records show that U.S. Magistrate Judge David Duncan in Phoenix signed documents Friday to allow Melvin Bundy to be moved to Nevada. Melvin Bundy's defense attorney didn't immediately respond Tuesday to messages.

The 41-year-old Bundy along with three brothers and his father are among 19 people accused of leading an in armed standoff in April 2014 that stopped federal agents from rounding up cows from public land near the Bundy family ranch in Nevada.
