State prosecutors file a revised indictment against Roman Zadorov in a retrial over the 2006 murder of a 13-year-old schoolgirl.

Zadorov, who was released to house arrest last month, will be tried again on the basis of new evidence, after serving more than a decade for the murder of Tair Rada, which he maintains he did not commit.

The new indictment charges Zadorov with premeditated murder, aggravated murder and obstruction of justice.

A number of new witnesses are set to testify during the retrial.
