The Minnesota man accused of stealing Judy Garland's famous ruby slippers from the classic film "The Wizard of Oz" is set to plead guilty.

A "change of plea" hearing has been scheduled for Terry Martin. He is now scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Oct. 13.

Martin was indicted by a federal grand jury in May on one count of theft of a major artwork. The slippers were snatched from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids back in August 2005.

The slippers were recovered by the FBI during a sting in 2018 after a man attempted to insure the shoes.

There are only four known pairs of Garland's ruby slippers that were used in "The Wizard of Oz".
