RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Fmr. Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen are expected to appear in front of a Richmond Federal Court judge Monday.

The couple are asking the judge to drop all corruption charges against them. If that request is denied, both have requested that their cases be tried separately.

The McDonnells are charged with 14 counts, and accepting more than $165,000 from former Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams.

A jury trial is expected to get underway in July.
