MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A plea hearing was delayed Monday afternoon for the second of two men accused of robbing a concert-meister of a 300-year-old Stradivarius violin in Milwaukee.
42-year-old Salah Salashadyn had his proceeding pushed up to July 24th.
He earlier pleaded not guilty to felony robbery, but his lawyer asked last month for a proceeding in which to finalize an apparent plea deal.
The other defendant, 36-year-old Universal Allah, is scheduled to be sentenced July 24th after he negotiated a robbery conviction.
Both men were accused of stealing a rare Stradivarius from a concert meister after a night-time performance in January at Wisconsin Lutheran College.
Police recovered the violin nine days later, and it was found in good condition in an attic on Milwaukee's south side.
