KENNEBUNK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police in Kennebunk have released just two more names of men summonsed in connection with the Alexis Wright prostitution case.

Wright pled not guilty last month to 106 counts of prostitution, invasion of privacy and other charges.

She is accused of using her Zumba dance studio as a front for prostitution. According to court documents, Wright allegedly videotaped her encounters and kept meticulous records. Mark Strong, Wright's business partner, has pleaded not guilty to 59 misdemeanor counts of promotion of prostitution.

Those charged with Engaging a Prostitute are Jay P. Sanborn, 46, of Springvale and Ricky J. Dewitt, 49 of Lyman.

Both men are due in Biddeford District Court on February 20, 2013.

A total of 64 men have now been charged with Engaging a Prostitute.

Kennebunk Police Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee says only two names were released Friday because suspects are hiring lawyers and canceling interviews with investigators. He says some may deal directly with the prosecutor, eliminating the need for a police summons.
