An unusual ripple effect of the mass shooting that left 58 people dead and hundreds wounded along the Las Vegas Strip last Sunday is that it could have implications for a high-profile federal trial that is set to begin here this week – a case that also involves weapons.

A Montana militiaman who is accused of weapons charges and conspiring against the U.S. government asked a federal judge this week to delay his trial by 60 days because of the Las Vegas shooting. The charges against Ryan Payne stem from the 2014 Bundy ranch standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada, and the trial is slated to start with jury selection Thursday.

On Thursday, Payne’s attorneys filed another motion, seeking to move the trial from Las Vegas to Reno. They argued that it would be impossible to seat a fair jury in light of the massacre.

“In Reno, the jury pool will not include an overwhelming number of persons who personally know victims or survivors,” Payne’s attorneys wrote. A jury pool from the Las Vegas area, they argued, “will find it impossible to put the events of Oct. 1 out of their memory any time in the near future.”

Ammon Bundy, also charged in the case, filed a similar motion Friday seeking to join the request to delay and move the trial.

The judge Friday evening agreed to move the trial to Oct. 30, according to an attorney for Payne.
