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):
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.
