SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The girlfriend of a son accused of killing his parents on their Salem farm has been indicted of two counts of aggravated murder by a Polk County grand jury.

The Statesman Journal reports that 46-year-old Cindy Lou Beck had been originally charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and one count of hindering prosecution. She will be arraigned Thursday.

Prosecutors says 20-year-old Andrew Jondle killed his parents on their farm and allegedly stole money, jewelry and credit cards before Beck helped him dispose of his bloody clothes hours after the slaying.

Police say trouble started when Jondle began dating Beck, who they say his parents didn't like.
