"Jihad Jane" in Phila. Court Tuesday

MySpace

Colleen R. LaRose is expected to plead guilty to at least some charges.

A Pennsylvania woman accused of supporting a global terror plot under the online screen name "Jihad Jane'' is scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing.

Forty-seven-year-old Colleen LaRose is scheduled to appear in a federal court in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Authorities say the suburban Philadelphia woman helped foreign terror suspects intent on starting a holy war in Europe and South Asia. Prosecutors say she agreed to kill a Swedish cartoonist who had offended Muslims.

The Pennsburg woman has been in custody since October 2009.

LaRose and co-defendant Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Leadville, Colo., are the rare U.S. women charged with terrorism.

Paulin-Ramirez has pleaded not guilty since she was arrested in Ireland with other terror suspects in March.
