A federal grand jury has added charges against another man in an alleged vote-buying conspiracy involving the school superintendent in Breathitt County.
A federal grand jury first indicted Superintendent Arch Turner in March on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and lying to a federal agent.
A superseding indictment returned Wednesday charges Turner with conspiracy; lying to the FBI; telling someone else to lie to a federal grand jury; and trying to get a witness not to talk.
The indictment also charges that Turner and John L. Turner conspired with several others in the vote-buying scheme, and that Arch Turner provided money to buy votes.
