A federal judge will decide what should happen to more than $1 million worth of guns seized from the home of an Arkansas doctor who was later convicted in a bombing that nearly killed the head of the Arkansas State Medical Board.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian Miller will consider arguments this week regarding the guns that belonged to Randeep Mann, who's serving a life sentence for the 2009 bombing at the West Memphis home of Dr. Trent Pierce.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Mann says the 94 weapons should be returned to his estate. Pierce wants the weapons sold and the proceeds applied to a $122.5 million civil judgment he won against Mann last year.

Mann's wife and the federal government have also filed claims for the guns.
