Two members of a notorious family that authorities say once tried to set up a whites-only nation in America are set for arraignment on weapons and drug charges.
Kirby Kehoe and his 37-year-old son, Cheyne, were arrested last month 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 are set to be arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Phoenix on multiple charges, including illegally possessing firearms and body armor and intent to distribute marijuana.
Cheyne Kehoe's attorney has said his client used a rifle found at his father's home for target practice and that he has disavowed white supremacy. Kirby Kehoe's public defender hasn't returned telephone messages.
