Grand jury indicts accused Orleans wife killer for mail fraud

Local News

An Orleans man accused of killing his wife is facing more charges in a separate case.

Randall Swartz, who is accused of shooting his wife, Thea, to death in their Orleans home in May, has been indicted on 11 counts of mail fraud by a federal grand jury in Rutland.
    
According to the indictment, Swartz used to be employed by Agri-Mark in Cabot as a maintainance manager.
    
An investigation revealed he also had a side business selling reverse osmosis systems.
    
The indictment alleges Swartz caused Agri-Mark to order hundreds of thousands of dollars of reverse osmosis equipment that were fraudulently obtained and delivered through the U.S. Postal Service.
    
If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
     
Swartz, who suffered a gunshot wound to his abdomen during the incident in Orleans, was released from the hospital last week and is now in jail after pleading not guilty to second degree murder Monday.
