The widow and five children of the late dictator Augusto Pinochet were among 23 people indicted Thursday on corruption charges, a judge announced. Judge Carlos Cerda said he ordered the detention of the 23 relatives and former associates of Pinochet because of "solid indications that they had participated in the misuse of fiscal funds" during Pinochet's 1973-90 dictatorship.

Cerda was to decide whether to keep them detained or let them stand trial free.
