Mesa Man Charged In Vegas Massacre Ammunition Case Changing Plea
A Mesa man is changing his plea in a case related to the Las Vegas massacre. He’d been accused of illegally manufacturing ammunition sold to the gunman. The court has now set a change-of-plea hearing.
In October 2017, a gunman fired into a concert crowd from a high-rise hotel suite, killing 58 people. The fingerprints of Mesa resident Douglas Haig were found on unfired bullets in the suite.
In the past, Haig admitted to selling bullets to the gunman but not illegally manufacturing them. Haig’s trial was scheduled for next month and his change of plea hearing will take place next week.
His lawyer won’t say ahead of time what Haig will admit to or what sentence he’s expected to face.
