    Suspect apparently used Rock Creek Park as 'hunting ground'

    Prosecutors said they may call four fellow inmates of the man charged in federal intern Chandra Levy's slaying to testify at trial.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Fernando Campoamor told D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher on Friday that he did not want to reveal certain details about the witnesses to the defense until two weeks before the October trial, citing concerns about their safety.

    Defense attorneys for Ingmar Guandique, the man charged in Levy's death, said they needed the information much earlier to review whether they have issues with honesty.

    But Fisher agreed with the prosecution's timeline, saying they only needed to give the defense information, including whether the witnesses provided inconsistent statements, two weeks before trial.

    Levy, of Ceres, disappeared in 2001 and her body was found a year later in Washington, D.C.'s Rock Creek Park.
