Detroit — A former Fiat Chrysler executive and the widow of a former UAW leader have struck plea deals as part of a $4.5 million corruption scandal involving the Detroit Three automakers and the United Auto Workers.

Former FCA labor negotiator Alphons Iacobelli and Monica Morgan-Holiefield, the widow of former UAW Vice President General Holiefield, are expected to plead guilty to unspecified federal charges next week.

The plea deals come as federal agents have expanded the corruption investigation to include a member of General Motors Co.’s board and the United Auto Workers training centers funded by all three Detroit automakers.
