LAS VEGAS - The married couple who police say killed three people in Las Vegas, including two police officers, had been kicked off a ranch where anti-government protesters faced down federal agents earlier this year.
Ammon Bundy, the son of rancher Cliven Bundy, tells The Associated Press that Jerad and Amanda Miller were asked to leave his father's ranch after being there for a few days this spring.
Ammon Bundy says that while details are still sketchy, the Millers' conduct was the problem.
He calls the couple "very radical" and says they didn't "align themselves" with the protest's main issues.
They were told to leave by members of a militia that also had come to the ranch in support of Bundy.
