WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia prosecutors say they plan to call at least 15 witnesses in the trial of a man charged in a series of random hammer attacks last year.

The prosecutors revealed their plans in a letter this week to lawyers for Michael Davis, who is charged with killing a man visiting D.C. from Colorado.

The witnesses are not identified by name but their expected testimony is summarized in the court filing.

Among the witnesses is a person who told investigators that Davis had not been taking medicine for mental illness around the time of the hammer attacks in April 2012.

Davis' mental health has been at issue, but he was deemed competent for trial in May.

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