LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) - A judge has declined to rule on a request to set aside a conviction in the 2010 explosion that killed two workers at a New Hampshire gunpowder plant.

Craig Sanborn's attorney, Mark Sisti, said a witness who testified Sanborn knew his Colebrook Black Mag plant was deficient embellished his own military record.

The Caledonian Record reports Sisti said the witness was a principal of a Florida-based gunpowder firm with which Sanborn entered into a contract. He said such misrepresentations "cast grave doubt" on his testimony.

Coos Superior Court Judge Peter Bornstein said he has no jurisdiction as Sanborn has an appeal pending in the state Supreme Court.

Sanborn, of Maidstone, Vermont, was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison. He's been convicted of wire fraud in Maine.
