JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The man accused of taking illicit photographs of the bedridden wife of U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran has been indicted on burglary charges.

Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest said Clayton Kelly, of Pearl, was served Wednesday with an indictment charging him with one count of burglary, one count of attempted burglary and one count of conspiracy to commit burglary.

Kelly was released in May on $75,000 bond after his arrest on other charges. Kelly's lawyer, Kevin Camp, says his client wasn't re-arrested Wednesday and remains free on that bond.

Police say Kelly photographed Rose Cochran, without permission, in a nursing home and posted her image online. Investigators have said conspirators intended to use images of Rose Cochran to advance allegations that her husband, the senator, was having an inappropriate relationship.
