WASHINGTON -

Prosecutors are denying a defense request to reveal the names of witnesses they plan to call in the trial of a District of Columbia man accused in a series of random hammer attacks last year.

Prosecutors last week revealed 15 potential witnesses they plan to call in the case against Michael Davis, who is accused of killing a man visiting from Colorado and assaulting several other people in separate attacks.

Defense lawyers asked for the witnesses' identities, but prosecutors say in a new letter that "at this time," they won't provide the names and contact information for safety reasons.

The prosecutors say they can try to make available to defense lawyers witnesses with whom they want to speak.

Davis is the brother of NFL players Vernon and Vontae Davis.
