PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge in Phoenix has ordered a woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton to remain in federal custody until she can appear in court in Las Vegas.

Alison Michelle Ernst made an initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in her hometown of Phoenix after she was arrested Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven Logan appointed attorney Maria Weidner to represent the 36-year-old. Weidner says Ernst looks forward to resolving the case.

Ernst had been freed from custody in Nevada with a court summons on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge following her arrest Thursday at the Mandalay Bay resort.

U.S. prosecutors filed federal misdemeanor trespassing and violence against a person charges Sunday. Those counts could get Ernst up to two years in federal prison.

The shoe missed Clinton, and Ernst immediately surrendered to authorities.
