The wife of accused fraudster Dr. Arthur Porter is expected to plead guilty this morning on money laundering charges.

Pamela Porter is set to appear at the Montreal courthouse this morning.

The charges are in relation to an alleged $22.5-million kickback scheme over the McGill University Health Centre's new superhospital.

Her husband is accused of accepting an $11.25-million bribe to award the contract for the new McGill University Health Centre's​ superhospital to the engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin. She's accused of helping him launder that money.

Police also say some of the $250,000 bail money raised by her notary, after she was arrested last year, came through one of the family's suspect bank accounts.

Porter surrendered herself to police when she was charged in September.
