PORTLAND -- A former Gladstone police sergeant charged with aggravated murder is facing new allegations.

A Multnomah County grand jury indicted Lynn Benton (pictured above right) on felony drug charges.

Benton is currently awaiting trial for the murder of his estranged partner. Deborah Higbee-Benton  (pictured above left) was found dead in her Gladstone beauty salon on May 28, 2011.

Two others were also accused of participating in the alleged murder-for-hire plot.
