(Richmond, VA) -- The prosecution's key witness will return to the stand today as the corruption trial of former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife enters its second week. Former Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams told the court Friday that he often did not remember when he gave gifts and loans to the couple. The McDonnells' attorneys have asserted that the former first couple's marriage was crumbling when Williams started to provide luxury gifts and large loans in exchange for political favors. On, Friday Williams also told the court that he was "much" closer with Maureen McDonnell than he was with her husband and that he spent more time with her than he did with the former governor.
