CHATHAM, NJ — A Morris County
grand jury today issued a revised indictment against the former custodian of a Chatham church accused of murdering a parish priest, according to The Star-Ledger.

According to the article, Feliciano is also charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and one count of hindering his apprehension.
Feliciano, 64, of Easton, Pennsylvania, is charged with stabbing Hinds 32 times October 22, 2009, the article noted.
The original indictment said the murder was "outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhuman in that it involved torture, depravity of mind or an aggravated assault."
