NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- 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-count 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 official influence in the development of a garage on city-owned land in Trenton.

The indictment was handed up Thursday in Trenton.

Mack has continued in his position, despite a no-confidence vote by the Trenton City council since his arrest in September.

Attorneys for each defendant did not immediately return calls seeking comments.
