HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) That twist was an unexpected revelation about the McDonnells' relationship.
What we learned in the defense's opening statements is that Mrs. McDonnell allegedly had a crush on Star Scientific CEO Johnnie Williams. The shortlist of items that came out in the trial on Jul.28 was just the beginning.
Here is a look at this list of exhibits for the prosecution:
Court documents WHSV received show multiple email and text correspondences between the McDonnells and Williams. They also revealed the clothes items Williams allegedly bought Mrs. McDonnell.
On that list was everything from Louis Vuitton wallets to Oscar De La Renta sweaters and golf clubs.
The trial has seen a lot of social media chatter.
Belinda Yarnell commented on Facebook, "They are both guilty."
