Fugitive siblings from Fla. in Colorado court
WALSENBURG, Colo. -- Three siblings accused in a cross-country crime spree that began in Florida and ended with a police chase in southern Colorado could soon learn whether they'll stand trial.
Lee Grace Dougherty and her brothers Dylan Stanley-Dougherty and Ryan Edward Dougherty were in court in Walsenburg, Colo., on Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
Such hearings in Colorado typically involve judges hearing from arresting officers to determine if there's enough evidence to hold a trial. However, defendants can waive their right to have the evidence presented in court.
The siblings are accused of robbing a bank in Georgia and shooting at police officers in Florida and Colorado. They're also suspected in two car thefts in Utah.
They haven't entered pleas yet.
