A Maine man already serving a 45-year prison sentence for killing a woman in 1999 has been indicted on charges connected to the death of a fellow inmate.Franklin Higgins was indicted Wednesday in Knox County Superior Court for two counts of aggravated attempted murder in connection with the May 2011 beating death of Lloyd Millett.Higgins had been indicted for murder in connection with Millett’s death, but prosecutors say an autopsy showed there may have been other contributing causes, so the indictment was revised.The Bangor Daily News reports the new indictment says Higgins struck Millett in the head with a pipe clamp and that was a substantial step toward committing murder. Higgins was convicted of killing of Katherine Poor inside her Kenduskeag home.
