The Roanoke Times reports that a Bedford County grand jury indicted the 61-year-old Colgan on Friday. Colgan is accused of offering to pay $5,000 to an undercover detective to kill his estranged wife. He was arrested June 19. The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office has said investigators became aware of threats Colgan made against his wife. She had a protective order against him. The couple’s divorce was finalized in August after Colgan was arrested. Colgan’s trial is set for March 15 in Bedford County Circuit Court.
