CHICAGO (AP) - Federal prosecutors have rested their case in the Chicago trial of a deputy U.S. marshal accused of leaking information about a federal witness to the mob.

Before prosecutors rested Tuesday, FBI Special Agent Edward McNamara testified that John Ambrose called a restaurant hours after his second stint protecting witness Nicholas Calabrese.

Ambrose’s friend William Guide owned The Pizza King. Prosecutors say Ambrose fed details of Calabrese’s cooperation in the Operation Family Secrets investigation to Guide, knowing they’d end up with the mob.

The defense called two of Ambrose’s colleagues in the Marshals Service. They say they used The Pizza King as a “staging area” for the fugitive warrant unit. Both say Ambrose is honest.
