UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A Milwaukee researcher is expected to plead guilty to a reduced charge today, after he was accused of stealing a potential cancer-fighting chemical. Authorities said Hua Jun Zhao stole three vials of the compound, plus academic research at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Officials said he was planning to introduce both the chemical and the research as his own in China.

The 42-year-old Zhao had earlier pleaded innocent to a federal indictment for tampering with a private computer and lying to a federal agent. He struck a plea deal in which he’ll plead guilty to accessing a computer without authorization. The thefts occurred in February, when Zhao did research work at the Medical College. Prosecutors said he wanted to take the materials to China, where he’s listed as an assistant professor at Zhejiang University.
