After a "TRUE BILL" of indictment has been issued, can the state add additional charges for the same trial?

I think that they can but I do think that they have to go thru the grand jury to add additional ones. Talk to the attorney handling the case and see what is going on.
A true bill states that a grand jury has listened to the 'evidence' and believe that there is enough to warrant a trial. ALot of times a prosecutor won't put all of the charges on at the same time so if he looses one case he can charge you for some more shyt later.
Nice incentive for your to enter into a plea

yes, each charge is independent of all others. Up to the prosecutor, defense attorney and the judge to agree they all are adjudicated at the same trial.

It's called an Addendum or Addenda.

So long as they are motioned in, and the defense is notified ahead of the additions.
