The Associated Press

ST. CLAIRSVILLE - Two Pennsylvania residents have been indicted in the 1997 slaying of a University of a Cincinnati medical student whose body was found on a remote road near this eastern Ohio city a few days after his disappearance.

A Belmont County grand jury on Friday indicted Marlene Smith, 49, and Douglas Main, 43, both of Washington, Pa. They were indicted on one count each of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, according to a statement released Friday by the Belmont County prosecutor's office.

Anthony Proviano, 29, of Baldwin Borough, Pa., was reported missing by his family when he failed to arrive at his family's home as expected for Christmas in 1997. The UC College of Medicine student's body was found Dec. 28 behind a hotel in Belmont County.
