(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - Ex-Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders lineman Anthony Wayne Smith is being charged with three additional murders even as he awaits retrial in another murder case.

Smith was charged Monday in the November 1999 slayings of brothers Kevin and Ricky Nettles, and the June 2001 death of Dennis Henderson, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He also faces other charges, including kidnapping and robbery.

A mistrial was declared in April after a jury deadlocked on whether Smith should be convicted of murder in the 2008 death of Maurilio Ponce.

Smith was a defensive end with Oakland and later the Los Angeles Raiders from 1991 to 1998.
