CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — A federal grand jury which returned the original indictment last June against West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals Justice Allen H. Loughry II added a superseding indictment Tuesday which adds an obstruction of justice count to existing counts including wire and mail fraud, false statements, and witness tampering offenses, a United States attorney said.

Loughry was charged June 19 in a 22-count indictment that was unsealed Tuesday, United States Attorney Mike Stuart said in a statement issued Tuesday.

The new count charges that between December 4, 2017, and May 24, Loughry knowingly and corruptly endeavored to influence, obstruct, and impede the due administration of justice—a pending federal grand jury investigation the existence of which Loughry was well aware, according to the superseding indictment.
