A New Jersey mayor is accused of leaving his ex-wife on his town's health and prescription plans. A grand jury in Bergen County has indicted Carlstadt Mayor William Roseman and his ex, Lori Lewin, on charges of conspiracy, theft by deception and official misconduct.

Prosecutors say Roseman failed to notify the town's benefits administrator when the couple divorced in July 2000.

Prosecutors say Lewin obtained prescription benefits in excess of $7,000 through January 2008 and received medical benefits through 2003.

Roseman and Lewin will be scheduled to appear for arraignment in about four weeks.
