In a surprise development, a woman who fatally shot Pittsburgh FBI agent Sam Hicks in 2008 is set to enter a guilty plea in federal court Tuesday morning, court records show.

U.S. District Judge Terrence F. McVerry set the plea date for Christina Korbe just three days after he ordered the federal jury administrator to summon 350 people to serve as the jury pool for the March 7 trial. The potential jurors were set to report to the courthouse on Feb. 14 for preliminary instructions.

Christina Korbe is charged with shooting Hicks to death. Hicks and other agents had come to the house to serve an arrest warrant for Korbe’s husband. She opened fire, killing Hicks. Her husband Robert Korbe has been sentenced to 25 years in prison on drug and other charges. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported the plea agreement.

Authorities said when the agents came to the home, Robert Korbe ran in the basement to get rid of cocaine and his wife Christina opened fire from upstairs.

In November 2009, the Baltimore FBI building was named after Hicks, who had been a Baltimore cop before joining the FBI.
