New Orleans, La. - A Slidell man who was held captive in South Sudan faces a new charge in an alleged kickback scheme.

Federal prosecutors have charged Mark McCabe with conspiracy. He was already facing one count of receiving illegal kickbacks and one count of wire fraud.

Investigators think McCabe was involved in a kickback scheme while working as a government subcontractor in Afghanistan.

Last year, he was held captive in South Sudan for more than a month on a kidnapping charge. He returned to the United States when the charges were dropped. The feds arrested him just days following his return.

McCabe's arraignment is set for April 4.
