WorldCom case may see more charges

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Federal prosecutors said Wednesday they will level new charges and may indict new defendants in the burgeoning WorldCom accounting investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney David Anders told U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Jones that he intends to file a superseding indictment in the case that has already branded five WorldCom executives as co-conspirators in the largest accounting scandal in U.S. history.

Dec. 9 was set for a pretrial hearing.
