NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Washington, D.C., judge has issued an emergency order preventing the release of a Georgia woman involved in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Lisa Eisenhart is accused of breaking into the Capitol with her son, Eric Munchel of Nashville, Tennessee. Both were arrested and are being held in Nashville.

In separate hearings, a Nashville judge had ordered them released to home confinement.

In an emergency order Tuesday, a federal judge in the District of Columbia blocked Eisenhart's release and ordered her transported to D.C. The judge issued the same order for Munchel on Sunday.
