MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee man who pleaded guilty in the theft of a $5 million Stradivarius violin is due to be sentenced, and his co-defendant is expected to change his not-guilty plea.

Salah Salahadyn and Universal K. Allah are both due in court Thursday.

Salahadyn initially pleaded not guilty to felony robbery. His attorney has requested a new plea date, which suggests Salahadyn plans to change his plea.

Allah pleaded guilty to felony robbery. Prosecutors say he provided the stun gun used to attack a concertmaster in January as he left a performance. Allah's attorney has said Allah wasn't at the scene of the robbery.

Prosecutors say Salahadyn been plotting for a while to steal a Stradivarius.

Police recovered the 300-year-old Stradivarius in good condition after nine days.
