Jury Sworn For Trial Of 6 In Bundy Standoff Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A jury has been sworn in for opening statements Thursday in Las Vegas in the federal trial of six defendants accused of stopping U.S. agents at gunpoint from rounding up cattle near Cliven Bundy's ranch in April 2014.

The 16-member panel includes 11 women and five men. Four will end up as alternates.

They were told Tuesday to be prepared for 10 weeks of trial in the case against four men from Idaho and one each from Arizona and Oklahoma.

Bundy and other defendants are due for trial after the first trial finishes.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro could decide evidence matters Wednesday, including whether defense teams will get U.S. Bureau of Land Management disciplinary records about Daniel Love. He's the supervisory agent from Utah who headed the Bundy roundup.
