Jurors in Detroit federal court have heard the outline of the government's case against former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Now they'll start hearing evidence.
Prosecutors will summon the first witnesses Monday in the corruption trial of Kilpatrick, his father Bernard, best friend Bobby Ferguson and the former head of the Detroit water department.
Jurors broke for the weekend after hearing opening statements Friday. The Kilpatricks are charged with conspiring with Ferguson and Victor Mercado to fix city contracts so that Ferguson's construction company could get lucrative work.
Kwame Kilpatrick is also charged with taking bribes, evading taxes and committing extortion while pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars. He quit the mayor's office in 2008 due to an unrelated scandal.
