LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal judge in Nevada says a jury will decide if an Arizona man illegally manufactured bullets sold to the gunman who staged the deadliest mass shooting in the nation’s modern history.

U.S. District Judge James Mahan’s ruling on Wednesday puts Douglas Haig on track for trial beginning Aug. 12 in Las Vegas.

Haig’s attorneys wanted a bench trial in Phoenix, close to Haig’s home in Mesa, Arizona.

They argued jurors can’t fairly hear the case in Las Vegas, where 58 people died and hundreds were injured in the October 2017 shooting.

Haig isn’t accused of the shooting.

He admits selling ammunition and is accused of illegally making tracer and armor-piercing bullets found in the hotel room where the Las Vegas gunman rained rapid gunfire into a concert crowd before killing himself.
