Milwaukee man pleads guilty in theft of $5M Stradivarius violin

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WXOW) -- One of two Milwaukee men accused of stealing a $5 million violin pleads guilty.

Online court records show Universal K. Allah pleaded guilty to robbery Wednesday morning in Milwaukee County. His sentencing hearing is set for late July.

Allah and Salah Salahadyn are charged with felony robbery after investigators say they used a stun gun to attack and rob a violin concertmaster of his Stradivarius violin, worth $5 million, in January. The 300-year-old violin was missing for nine days before police found it in good condition.

Salahadyn had previously pleaded not guilty, but is scheduled for another plead hearing June 30.
