The half brother of Dane Cook has been indicted by a grand jury in Massachusetts on charges of stealing millions from the comedian. Attorney General Martha Coakley's office on Thursday said Darryl McCauley was charged with eight counts of larceny over $250, forgery and larceny by continuous scheme.

Prosecutors say the 43-year-old McCauley stole the money while being paid $12,500 a month as business manager for Cook's company, Great Dane Enterprises. In one instance, McCauley was accused of forging a $3 million check written from Cook's account to himself.

The indictment moves the case to Superior Court. Following his client's arraignment in district court in January, defense attorney Robert Goldstein said McCauley denied taking money without Cook's consent.
