NEW ORLEANS - A former Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputy has been indicted on charges he engaged in a scheme to kill a man to prevent him from reporting the deputy's alleged theft and misuse of his debit card.

A 60-count federal indictment unsealed Monday charges the former deputy, Mark Hebert, with stealing Albert Bloch's debit card following a 2007 car accident and using it to make purchases while the man was hospitalized.

Hebert isn't explicitly charged with killing Bloch, but the indictment accuses him of either killing the man "with specific intent" or participating in unspecified conduct that caused his death.

Hebert's attorney, Davidson Ehle, said his client didn't kill Bloch and will fight all the charges against him.

A sheriff's spokesman says Bloch was reported missing but a body hasn't been found.
