More trouble for 'You Light Up My Life' songwriter

NEW YORK (AP) -- More sour notes have hit the "You Light Up My Life" songwriter accused of molesting 13 women lured to his New York City apartment for supposed acting auditions.

Prosecutors said Friday they plan to seek testimony from at least 12 more women who say they've been molested by Joseph Brooks. For various legal reasons, their cases won't be added to his indictment.

Brooks has pleaded not guilty to predatory sexual assault and other charges. His lawyer said he believes other women can testify that Brooks invited them for auditions and nothing happened. His trial date has not been set.

The composer's son, Nicholas Brooks, has pleaded not guilty in the death of a swimsuit designer who was found strangled and drowned in a bathtub at the trendy Soho House hotel.
