Davis is under indictment on charges of first degree murder and assault in the murder of Levine and the wounding of Levine's wife and their southeast Denver townhouse last October. Authorities said business associates of Levine were upset with his gambling debts. The Colorado Organized Crime Strike Force said underworld money from the East Coast was being used to finance Levine's operations. Davis, accused of being one of two hit-men in the slaying, was escorted on the flight to Denver by Asst. Ally. Gen. Richard Nathan, Sgt. Robert Cantwell and Detective s Joel Humphrey, all with the strike force. . United Airlines said after the aircraft was airborne, one of the officers asked the steward- ess if Davis could have his handcuffs removed in order to eat. Davis also asked for a cocktail. A supervisor aboard the flight said the prisoner could not be served liquor, but he told them the policy of unlocking handcuffs was at the discretion of the escorts. The handcuffs then were removed and not placed on again until the plane began its descent into Denver. One of the escorts, asked if he considered Davis a dangerous prisoner., answered: "Where's he going to go at 35,000 feet?" District Judge Robert Fullerton Thursday issued a month- long gag order prohibiting prosecutors, police and defense attorneys from making public statements about the case. In addition to Davis, others charged include Michael Borrelli, former New York police officer and operator of a Denver^ restaurant, and Annunzio Saccone, a New York gambler. A fourth man, Terry D'Prero of Winter Park, Colo., was indicted for the murder, but was not charged after agreeing to serve as a slate witness.
