A federal judge has ruled that the trial for Douglas Haig, accused of selling illegally manufactured bullets to Stephen Paddock, will be a jury trial.

Haig's lawyer argued that a Las Vegas jury can not be fair and impartial and wanted the trial to be heard only by a judge in Arizona.

But earlier this week, a judge ruled against that. The trial has been scheduled to begin Aug. 12.


Haig has admitted he sold illegal ammunition to the gunman who killed 58 people in the 1 October mass shooting.
