LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Trial is being postponed for an Arizona man accused of illegally manufacturing bullets sold to the gunman who staged the Las Vegas Strip shooting in 2017.
U.S. District Judge James Mahan reset Douglas Haig's trial for Dec. 9 after both sides sought more time to prepare.
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say a jury, not a judge, should hear the Las Vegas trial of an Arizona man facing a federal ammunition manufacturing charge after selling bullets to the gunman who staged the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
A Tuesday court filing leaves the decision to a judge.
Douglas Haig's lawyers asked for a bench trial, arguing jurors can't fairly hear evidence in a city where 58 people died and over 850 were injured in October 2017.
Haig isn't accused of the shooting.
Prosecutors say his fingerprints were found on bullets in the high-rise hotel suite where the gunman shot into a concert crowd.
Haig has pleaded not guilty to illegally making tracer and armor-piercing bullets at his Mesa, Arizona, home.
His trial is scheduled for Aug. 12.
