Enron's Skilling Indicted for Fraud

Federal prosecutors in Houston charge former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling in a 42-count indictment that accuses him of conspiracy, insider trading and securities and wire fraud. The charges imply that Skilling was aware of Enron's financial troubles more than a year and half before the company's collapse. Hear NPR's Wade Goodwyn.
