ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Two of former New York Comptroller Alan Hevesi’s top aides have been indicted on charges they took millions of dollars in kickbacks and other payments to steer state pension fund investments to favored companies.

State officials say Henry Morris, who was Hevesi’s top political adviser, and David Loglisci (loh-GLEE’-see), the former chief investment officer in the comptroller’s office, each face 123 charges. They include enterprise corruption, securities fraud, grand larceny, bribery and money laundering.

Both pleaded not guilty at their arraignment Thursday in Manhattan.

The charges came after a two-year investigation by the state attorney general’s office, which said the probe is continuing. Hevesi has not been charged.
