A Roman Catholic priest already accused of raping two altar boys has been indicted on two more sex charges in New Hampshire.

The Rev. Joseph Maguire, 72, already was charged with assaulting the boys from St. Joseph parish between 1977 and 1981. Now a Strafford County grand jury has indicted him on two more rape counts involving boys between 9 and 12 years old from 1975 to 1978.

Maguire has been suspended by the Diocese of Manchester. He is scheduled for trial in October on the earlier charges.

He is being held on $50,000 bail.
