No Las Vegas Appearances In Ranch Standoff Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) —Scheduled court appearances didn't happen Monday in Las Vegas for two sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and four other men accused of taking part in an armed confrontation with government agents two years ago.

Bundy family matriarch Carol Bundy said she was told the men were still in federal custody in Portland, Oregon. Court officials didn't immediately respond to messages.

Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Blaine Cooper, Brian Cavalier, Ryan Payne and Peter Santilli are accused of taking part in standoffs at the Bundy ranch in April 2014 and at an Oregon wildlife refuge this year. They're among 19 people facing conspiracy, obstruction, weapon and assault on a federal officer charges for stopping a U.S. Bureau of Land Management round-up of Bundy cattle near Bunkerville. They're also among 26 people facing federal charges in the Oregon case.
