LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A judge has canceled a bench trial to decide what should happen to nearly 100 firearms seized from an Arkansas doctor who was convicted in a bombing that nearly killed the head of the Arkansas State Medical Board.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian Miller says he will instead consider written briefs regarding the guns owned by Dr. Randeep Mann, who is serving a life sentence for the 2009 bombing at Dr. Trent Pierce’s house.

Miller will decide whether the 94 guns should be turned over to the federal government or sold to collectors, with proceeds going to either Mann’s wife, Pierce, or both.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2bbS3aD ), the weapons at issue are one shotgun, 83 machine guns, eight silencers and two receivers.
