VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Three siblings accused of robbing a Valdosta bank during a cross-country crime spree that started in Florida and ended with a shootout in Colorado are asking a federal judge in Georgia to hear their cases separately.

Lawyers for Ryan Dougherty, Lee Grace Dougherty and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty filed motions Monday asking the judge to hear their cases separately and to suppress statements they made to law enforcement while in custody.

All three have been indicted on bank robbery and firearm charges in Georgia.

They've pleaded guilty to Colorado charges stemming from their capture last August. Ryan Dougherty got 18 years, Lee Grace Dougherty received 24 years and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty got 32 years for those charges.

They also face charges in Florida for allegedly shooting at an officer during a high-speed chase.
