Two former allies of Gov. Chris Christie have been indicted on charges related to their alleged role in creating politically motivated traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge in 2013.

An indictment against Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni was unsealed Friday after it was filed on April 23.

Kelly was fired by Christie as his deputy chief of staff after the plot came to light, and Baroni resigned from his job as deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

They are charged with nine counts, including conspiracy and fraud.

Both were implicated in the plot by former Port Authority executive David Wildstein, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges Friday. He could face about two years in prison at sentencing Aug. 6.

An attorney for Baroni says he is reviewing the indictment and will comment later Friday. Kelly's attorney wasn't immediately available.
