MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- An Auburn man accused of organizing high-stakes dog fights in Alabama is scheduled in federal court to enter a guilty plea.

Donnie Anderson filed paperwork saying he wants to plead guilty. A federal judge has scheduled a hearing Wednesday afternoon in Montgomery.

Anderson was indicted last year on charges accusing him of organizing fights in Macon and Lee counties where people bet thousands per dog. Federal investigators seized 126 dogs from his property.

Another man charged in the case, Ricky Van Le of Biloxi, Miss., has also filed paperwork saying he wants to enter a guilty plea Wednesday. He's accused of participating in a dog fight in Alabama.

Their pleas would bring the number of guilty pleas in the case to nine.
