Two men charged for Wisconsin theft of Stradivarius violin
Feb 7 (Reuters) - Two Wisconsin men were charged with stealing a rare Stradivarius violin worth millions of dollars from a concert violinist in late January, prosecutors said on Friday.
The violin, which was made in 1715 and had an appraised value of $5 million for insurance purposes, was recovered late Wednesday from a Milwaukee residence. It had been stored in a suitcase in an attic of a house, police said. (Reporting By Brendan O'Brien; Editing by Scott Malone)
