LAS VEGAS (AP) -- There'll be another O.J. Simpson Trial, this time in Las Vegas.

A justice of the peace has ruled that Simpson and two co-defendants must face trial on kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges.

The charges stem from the alleged robbery of sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel on September 13th. None of the charges in a 12-count complaint against the three men was dropped.

If convicted of kidnapping, Simpson could face up to a life sentence. An armed robbery conviction would mandate some time in prison.

Simpson has claimed that he was attempting to recover items stolen from him.
