Federal judges were supposed to meet Monday in Chicago to figure how to proceed in the case that involves separate indictments out of Chicago and New York. According to a judge’s order they’ll discuss the details Tuesday afternoon.

Kelly is expected in court.

The 52-year-old was arrested last week on a 13-count indictment that includes sex crimes and obstruction of justice. A federal indictment was also unsealed in New York that charges him with racketeering and sex-related crimes.

Kelly remains in federal custody. Federal prosecutors want him to stay there, arguing he’s dangerous and a flight risk.

His attorney denies the allegations.
