Guam - In the midst of jury selection, a superceding indictment has been handed down in the Blue House Lounge prostitution case.  Court Policy, Planning and Communications Director Joshua Tenorio confirms with KUAM that additional charges were handed down after 8pm Wednesday against former Blue House owner Song Ja Cha and police officers David Q. Manila and Anthony Quenga. 

It is unclear at this point when the three defendants will answer to the new charges that were handed down by a Superior Court grand jury last night.  Details of the new charges have not yet been made available.  Manila and Quenga have spent the last few days in court as attorneys work to empanel a jury.  Cha will be tried separately.  The three are accused of promoting prostitution at the former Upper Tumon lounge and forcing workers to perform sexual acts. 

Despite the new charges, jury selection is still scheduled to continue this afternoon at 1:30 before Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola.
