FILE - In a May 25, 2010 file photo, William Melchert-Dinkel, 47, walks to the Rice County Courthouse for his first court appearance in Faribault, Minn. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2011, Melchert-Dinkel is expected to enter a plea that gives a judge the power to determine guilt or innocence. Prosecutors say he advised and encouraged two people to take their lives: 18-year-old Nadia Kajouji, of Brampton, Ontario, killed herself in 2008; and 32-year-old Mark Drybrough, of Coventry, England, hung himself in 2005.
