‘Jihad Jane’ to plea to guilty

Several news agencies are reporting that Colleen LaRose (AKA “Jihad Jane“) is expected to change her plea to guilty in her alleged plot to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks.

LaRose was arrested by the FBI in October 2009. The case did not become public until March, when the indictment against her was unsealed, following the arrest of seven other people in Ireland in connection with a suspected plot to assassinate Vilks.

Attorneys representing LaRose could not be reached for comment Saturday. Defense attorney Mark Wilson told CNN that his client had decided to enter a guilty plea.
