SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man arrested last week for allegedly lying to a grand jury about the 1995 disappearance of a teenage girl will remain in federal custody for now.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Sam Alba on Wednesday ordered Timmy Brent Olsen, 28, of Spanish Fork, Utah, to stay behind bars until an outstanding warrant on a DUI charge is cleared.

Once that matter is resolved the court will resume a detention hearing to determine if Olsen must stay in custody pending his trial on 20 counts of perjury, U.S. Attorney for Utah spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch said.

Federal prosecutors say Olsen lied about his knowledge of and involvement in the disappearance of Spanish Fork teen Kiplyn Davis.

A grand jury indictment released Monday asserts Olsen knows who killed the then-15-year-old Davis and where he body may be found.

Olsen pleaded innocent to the charged and under oath in April denied knowing anything about Davis' disappearance.

Two other men also face charges related to the 10-year-old case.

Garry Blackmore, 25, has also pleaded innocent to perjury for allegedly lying to federal agents about Davis. He is in federal custody and scheduled for trial Oct. 19.

Prosecutors have also charged 28-year-old Scott Brunson, with perjury, claiming he provided an alibi for Olsen on the day Davis disappeared. He has also pleaded innocent and a trial is scheduled for Jan. 23, 2006.
