KENNEBUNK, Maine - Police in Maine say a woman has joined her husband on the client list of a Zumba dance instructor charged with using her studio as a front for prostitution.

She became the first woman to be identified Friday by police out of a list at least 64 men already charged with engaging a prostitute in the case. Police say the woman's husband was charged in October with being a client in the seaside town of Kennebunk.

Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee says fewer names are being released because suspects are dealing directly with the prosecutor, eliminating the need for a police summons.

Twenty-nine-year-old Alexis Wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts including prostitution, invasion of privacy, tax evasion and other charges. Her business partner also has pleaded not guilty.
