RICHMOND, Va. (AP) An FBI forensic computer analyst will be on the stand when the public corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, resumes in Richmond.

Tim Huff had just begun his testimony Tuesday when an alternate juror became ill, prompting U.S. District Judge James Spencer to adjourn court a few minutes early. Testimony resumes Wednesday.

The McDonnells are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and secret loans from former Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie Williams in exchange for promoting his company's dietary supplements products.

Prosecutors presented evidence Tuesday that McDonnell concealed one $50,000 loan from Williams by listing the creditor as "medical services" on a state-required annual financial statement.
