OJ Simpson to face robbery and kidnapping trial

A judge in the US has ruled that OJ Simpson should stand trial accused of armed robbery and kidnapping.

The charges relate to an incident in September in which Simpson and a number of men armed with guns allegedly entered a Las Vegas hotel room and held up two spots memorabilia dealers.

Simpson has already said he was just trying to recover memorabilia that had been stolen from him.

The 60-year-old former American football star and actor could face life in prison if convicted of the charges.
