McDonnell's corruption trial begins today

It's an historic Monday. Good morning from Heather.

Jury selection starts today in the corruption trial of a former Virginia governor and his wife in Richmond. Bob and Maureen McDonnell are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the CEO of a dietary supplements company in exchange for helping promote his products. Their trial in federal court begins at 10 a.m. and is expected to last at least five weeks.

Richmond Police are looking for an armed man who robbed a woman of her purse and cell phone last night, while she walked home from the store. It happened about 11 o'clock on P Street near Nine Mile Road.

Chesterfield Police are looking for a man they say ran from officers after they tried to pull over his car for having tinted windows. It happened about 8 o'clock last night on James Street near Virginia State University. Police say the car took off and when it finally stopped, they found cocaine and marijuana inside.

Andrew says expect a hot day today, then a cool down this week. Join us on the air now!
