Charlie Sheen is set to be charged with felony menacing.
The 'Two and a Half Men' star - who was arrested on Christmas Day (25.12.09) for allegedly threatening to kill wife Brooke Mueller - may also be accused of felony assault and misdemeanour criminal mischief and will know his fate either today (05.02.10) or early Monday morning (08.02.10).
A court insider told Radar Online: "Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin has previously told Sheen he could be charged with felony menacing, felony assault and misdemeanour criminal mischief. The fact that the arraignment is happening at the District Court is an indication that at least one felony charge will be placed against him - misdemeanours are handled in County Court."
The official hearing is due to take place in Colorado - the US state where the alleged incident happened - and both Sheen and Mueller are expected to attend.
Lawyers for both parties are expected to also make their case to relax the protective order that prohibits any contact between the couple, who have ten-month-old twin boys, Max and Bob.
Since Sheen's arrest, Mueller has allegedly checked into rehab for her reported problems with substance abuse.
The couple - who married in 2008 - are said to be keen to work through their problems and rebuild their marriage.
According to gossip website TMZ, Brooke left the Two Dreams Outer Banks rehabilitation centre in North Carolina yesterday (04.02.10), ahead of the court appearance.
