The elderly woman, identified as Christiane G., was indicted on charges of being an accomplice to an armed robbery by an organized gang, accomplice to holding someone against their will, possession of category A or B weapons, and criminal association.

The news comes one day after authorities confirmed that four people were indicted in connection to the Paris robbery, bringing the grand total to 10. All suspects are currently in custody, except for one individual, who is out on bail, Cobbe said.

Kim was robbed at gunpoint in the luxury apartment she was staying in, while her former bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, accompanied her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, to a party. The robbers took cash and jewelry -- about 10 pieces worth an estimated $11.2 million total, including Kim's rare $4.5 million 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring from husband Kanye West.

"It makes me so upset to think about it," Kim told her sisters Kourtney and Khloe about the incident during a preview of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, in which she broke her silence on the traumatizing robbery.
