The ex-manager of a US heavy metal band is expected to plead guilty to some charges brought over a fire that killed 100 people in a US nightclub.
Concert-goers were trapped inside the Station by the flames
Dan Biechele was to be tried in May on 200 counts of involuntary manslaughter related to the blaze at the Station nightclub in Rhode Island in 2003.
The fire started during a show by Great White, Mr Biechele's band, when fireworks ignited soundproofing foam.
Two brothers who were co-owners of the West Warwick club also face charges.
According to Judge Francis Darigan at Providence Superior Court, Rhode Island, Mr Biechele will plead guilty to "certain counts" against him.
Great White guitarist Ty Longley was among those killed in the fire, which began just seconds into the concert.
The band was popular during the 1980s, with hits including Rock Me and Once Bitten, Twice Shy.
