The U.S. Justice Department said in a release that 57-year-old W. Carl Reichel, the former president of Dublin-based Warner Chilcott, has been indicted on one count of conspiracy to pay kickbacks.

The only physician mentioned in the release was 64-year-old Dr. Rita Luthra of Longmeadow, who was indicted for receiving food and more than $23,500 in exchange for prescribing Warner Chilcott’s osteoporosis drugs.
