MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Montgomery man already in prison for identity theft has pleaded guilty to new charges.

Edward Lee McCall pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. A co-defendant in the case, Antonio Devon Harris of Montgomery, pleaded guilty to the same charges in January.

U.S. Attorney George Beck says the two used illegally obtained identities to file fraudulent tax returns for more than $900,000 in refunds between 2010 and 2012. Both are awaiting sentencing.

McCall is already serving an 18-year sentence. H was convicted in January of aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud. Beck says that case involved stolen identities and a credit card scheme that ran from 2004 to 2009.
