NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors in the trial of a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's liaison with another man won't say who they intend to call to testify as the trial heads to its sixth day.

The most highly anticipated witness is the other man allegedly seen in the streaming video. He's been identified only by the initials M.B. But it's not clear when he'll take the stand.

On trial is Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee), who is charged with bias intimidation, invasion of privacy and other crimes.

His roommate, Tyler Clementi, killed himself in September 2010, days after the alleged spying.

Most of the prosecution's witnesses so far have been other college students who have testified that they heard about the streamed video.
