LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trial is set to begin for a Las Vegas man who could face decades in prison if he's convicted of firing a gun backstage while trying to make off with costumes and props from the Thunder From Down Under male revue.

Defense attorneys Joshua Tomsheck and Roy Nelson plan to tell a state court jury beginning Tuesday that Joey Kadmiri had drug and mental health issues before the March 18 incident at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino.

They haven't said if Kadmiri will testify.

The 24-year-old Kadmiri faces nine felony burglary, robbery, battery and weapon charges.

He's got a criminal record including a misdemeanor escape conviction, and is facing a separate domestic violence case alleging he beat and confined a woman in a closet at gunpoint last November.
