ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man already sentenced to 35 years in federal prison for a shooting that paralyzed a St. Louis Cardinals fan after a 2015 game is expected back in state court on Friday after backing out of entering a plea.

At a hearing Wednesday, 33-year-old Kilwa Jones was expected to plead guilty to state charges and be sentenced a term concurrent to the federal charges. He decided not to, at least at that time. His attorney now says Jones will likely plead guilty at a hearing Friday, when his family is present.

Christopher Sanna of House Springs was badly injured when he was robbed and shot while returning to his car after a Cardinals game on Sept. 25, 2015.
