A Nevada judge cited lesser remaining charges and reduced bail for a man and a woman accused of conspiring to kidnap police officers to draw attention to an anti-government sovereign citizen philosophy.

Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish on Monday lowered bail for David Allen Brutsche from $600,000 to $200,000. The judge cut bail for Devon Campbell Newman from $200,000 to $50,000.

Prosecutors previously dropped the most serious charges of conspiracy to commit murder and attempted kidnapping with a weapon.

Brutsche and Newman have each pleaded not guilty to the remaining charge, and they face trial March 10.

Newman's attorney, Carl Arnold, on Monday withdrew a request for a separate trial.

Brutsche is representing himself. He told the judge he doesn't really adhere to a sovereign citizens movement.
