CARSON, N.D. – Court hearings have been postponed from Monday to Wednesday for a white supremacist and another man accused of terrorizing residents of Leith with loaded firearms in November.

Cobb and Kynan Dutton, who each face seven felony counts of terrorizing in Grant County District Court, were scheduled to appear for their preliminary hearings and/or arraignments at 2 p.m. Monday. The hearings are now set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at the county courthouse in Carson.

Court clerks said the hearings were postponed because of a funeral Monday.

Cobb, who bought up property in the small town of Leith with the intention of creating a haven for white supremacists, and Dutton, a white separatist who joined Cobb in Leith in October, both remain incarcerated in the Mercer County jail in Stanton.

Cobb is being held on $1 million cash-only bail and Dutton on $50,000 cash-only bail.
