DETROIT (WKZO) -- Money was the focus during the first day of testimony in the federal trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  The court heard from a witness representing the Internal Revenues Service, local bank employees and members of the mayor's executive protection unit

Authorities say Kilpatrick made 172-thousand dollars as the Mayor of Detroit, however he deposited more than half-a-million dollars into separate accounts.  Witnesses say that Kilpatrick often brought cash to the bank to pay bills.

Testimony in the case continues.
