Dougherty brothers appear in court today

WALSENBURG, Colo. (AP) - Two of three fugitive siblings who were the focus of a nationwide search last summer are due in court to enter pleas.

Twenty-one-year-old Ryan Dougherty and 26-year-old Dylan Stanley-Doughtery are scheduled to appear in Huerfano County court in Walsenburg Thursday for plea hearings. The two face charges of attempted second-degree murder and other felonies related to the trio's Aug. 10 capture following a chase in southern Colorado.

Their sister, 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, pleaded guilty last week to reduced charges. She pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and two counts of menacing, all felonies.

The trio is accused of shooting at a police officer in Florida, as well as robbing a Georgia bank, as well as shooting at officers in Colorado during their capture.
