Chicago terror suspected expected to plead guilty

CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man accused of helping scout out the Indian city of Mumbai before the 2008 terrorist attack that left 166 people dead is expected to plead guilty to federal charges.

Forty-nine-year-old David Coleman Headley is due in federal court in Chicago on Thursday to enter his plea.

Headley is also accused of planning an attack on a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005, offending Muslims. The attack never happened.

Headley and his attorneys have been negotiating with prosecutors for a plea deal that would spare him from the death penalty in exchange for information about international terrorists.

Attorneys have not said what specific charges Headley has agreed to plead guilty to.
