TRENTON, N.J. -- A federal grand jury has indicted the mayor of New Jersey's capital city on corruption charges.
Trenton Mayor Tony Mack, his brother and an associate are accused in an eight-county indictment of extortion, bribery, and mail and wire fraud.
New Jersey's U.S. attorney's office says the charges are related to an alleged scheme to accept $119,000 in bribes in exchange for Mack's influence in the development of a garage on city-owned land.

The indictment was handed up Thursday in Trenton.
Mack has continued in his position despite a no-confidence vote by the Trenton City Council after his September arrest.
Attorneys for each defendant did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
