The Latest: Residents of New Mexico compound ordered held

By The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The Latest on a remote New Mexico desert compound where 11 children were found living in filth and the body of a boy was discovered (all times local):

6:40 p.m.

A federal judge has ordered five former residents of a ramshackle compound in northern New Mexico held without bail.

The judge's ruling on Wednesday comes a day after a federal grand jury indicted the group on firearms and conspiracy charges. The indictment accused them of establishing a training camp and firing range and engaging in tactical training at the Taos County compound as part of a plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational and financial institutions.

A month ago, 11 children living at the squalid compound were taken into custody after local authorities raided the site in search of a missing 3-year-old boy who suffered from medical disabilities. His remains were discovered days later.

12:20 a.m.

Five residents of a ramshackle desert compound in New Mexico are scheduled for arraignments and detention hearings after being indicted by a federal grand jury on firearms and conspiracy charges.

Federal prosecutors say the group was preparing for violent attacks on government, military, educational and financial institutions at the time of their arrests last month.

The five members of an extended family are expected to appear in federal court in Albuquerque on Wednesday afternoon.

The grand jury indictment Tuesday alleges they transported firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico in December 2017.

Eleven children were removed from the squalid compound near the Colorado state line during an Aug. 3 raid by Taos County authorities.
