Inquest prosecutor knew of records, says lawyer

The New England Telephone Company was prepared to provide more records of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's telephone calls than it believed were subpoenaed for a 1970 inquest but the prosecution showed no interest, the lawyer who represented the company was quoted Sunday as saying.

Charles Parrott told the Boston Sunday Globe in an interview that then- District Attorney Edmund Dinis and his assistant, Armand Fernandes, were aware there were additional records but did not ask for them for use in the inquest into Mary Jo Kopechne's death.

The records listed telephone calls made on Mr. Kennedy's credit cards July 18 and 19, 1969, after the accident in which Miss Kopechne died. She drowned after a car driven by Senator Kennedy plunged off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island.
