I believe that was the case before Taylor's guilty plea. I had read that the prosecutor had indicated at last week's arraignment that a superceding indictment was going to be filed. Of course, probably the decision for the additional charges came about from conversations between the prosecutor and Taylor prior to the arraignment.
