Verdict coming for 6 in Bundy standoff in Nevada

LAS VEGAS - A verdict has been reached in the trial of six men who had assault-style weapons during a standoff that stopped government agents from rounding up cattle near Cliven Bundy's Nevada ranch in 2014.

A court official said Monday that the jury's decision will be read at 10 a.m. in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

Each defendant faces 10 charges, including threatening and assaulting a federal officer, obstruction, extortion, weapon violations and conspiracy.

The trial is seen as a preview for an upcoming trial for Bundy; his eldest sons, Ammon and Ryan Bundy; and two other defendants who prosecutors have characterized as leaders of the conspiracy.

The standoff was seen as a victory by states' rights advocates who oppose federal control of land in the U.S. West.
