LOS ANGELES (AP) ? Court documents show a Florida man has been indicted on two additional felony counts that accuse him of hacking into another celebrity email account.

Christopher Chaney was charged Tuesday with one count each of unauthorized access to a computer and aggravated identity theft. He pleaded not guilty to 26 counts, including wiretapping, earlier this month. If convicted, he faces more than 100 years in prison.

An affidavit filed in the case says an unnamed actress complained her email was compromised in October and federal agents believe Chaney was the perpetrator.

The woman joins Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis as alleged victims who prosecutors say had their emails hacked into by Chaney.

An email message left for Chaney’s spokesman was not immediately returned.
