Purported Arizona white supremacists face more charges

PHOENIX -- Two members of a family whom authorities said once tried to set up a whites-only nation in America face additional charges after a federal raid on a northern Arizona ranch last month.

Kirby Kehoe and his 37-year-old son, Cheyne, were arrested after authorities raided Kirby Kehoe's 40-acre property near Ash Fork and seized dozens of guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

Both men have previous felony convictions and are banned from possessing firearms. They initially faced one charge each for having the weapons.

An indictment this week added additional charges for each defendant, including illegally possessing body armor and intent to distribute marijuana.

Cheyne Kehoe's attorney declined comment. Kirby Kehoe's public defender didn't return a telephone message Friday.

Both men are set for a court appearance in Phoenix on Wednesday.
