A former Allegheny County Jail guard is scheduled to plead guilty in federal court on March 4, according to a judge's order entered Monday.

A federal grand jury in February 2011 indicted Arii Metz, 34, of the North Side with depriving David Kipp, 26 of Polish Hill of his civil rights by assaulting him while Kipp was being held at the jail on Oct. 13, 2010.

Judge Nora Barry Fischer's order setting the plea hearing doesn't say if Metz will plead guilty to that charge of if he's reached an agreement with the government to plead to some other charge.

The U.S. Attorney's Office declined comment. Metz's lawyer, James Wymard, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
