The Latest: 3 In Idaho To Remain Held Pending Move To Nevada

A federal judge ordered three Idaho men to remain in custody at least until they appear in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas on charges stemming from an armed standoff with federal agents during a public lands dispute in April 2014.

A U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman says a judge in Boise on Wednesday ordered Orville Drexler and Eric Parker kept in federal custody pending their transfer to Nevada to face charges with rancher Cliven Bundy.

The judge left it up to a jurist in Nevada to decide whether to release Steve Stewart with conditions.

Records show that Todd Engle's detention hearing is Thursday.

The four from Idaho are among 19 people from at least seven states facing conspiracy, assault and other charges in the armed confrontation over Cliven Bundy grazing cattle on U.S. land near his ranch.
