    One of three men charged with killing a grandmother in the Vermont town of Sheffield is due in court where he's expected to change his plea.

    Michael Norrie is scheduled for a change of plea hearing Tuesday afternoon. He pleaded not guilty last year to first-degree murder, kidnapping and burglary in the death of Mary "Pat" O'Hagan during an attempted burglary.

    Attorney Rob Sussman, representing Norrie, says he does not expect the 24-year-old to be sentenced at Tuesday's hearing. That will follow a pre-sentence investigation by the Department of Corrections.

    Sussman says his client is not offering to testify against a co-defendant, 34-year-old Keith Baird, as part of the plea bargain.
