Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The second of two Milwaukee men accused of stealing a $5 million Stradivarius violin is expected to reverse his not-guilty plea Monday.

Salah Salahadyn, 42, entered that not guilty in February to the charge of being a party to felony theft. But last month, his attorney requested a new plea hearing, set for Monday afternoon

Salahadyn's 36-year-old co-defendant, Universal K. Allah, pleaded guilty to being party to robbery last month and is scheduled to be sentenced July 24.

The violin was recovered unharmed.
