COLUMBUS, Ohio — The government has accused three Ohio men of illegally entering the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The men are among dozens charged with being part of a mob of supporters of former President Donald Trump who entered the building.

In a case out of central Ohio, Dustin Thompson and Robert Lyon face preliminary charges of illegally entering the Capitol and violent and disorderly conduct on Capitol Grounds.

A judge allowed both to be released on their own recognizance Monday. In a case out of northeastern Ohio filed Monday, Stephen Ayres is accused of the same charges.
