DETROIT (WKZO) -- The trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is taking a break Wednesday in federal court in Detroit.  The ex-mayor and three co-defendants are charged with 36 criminal counts stemming from an investigation of Kilpatrick's time in office.

On Tuesday, the jury heard from a Kilpatrick friend who testified he was given 90-thousand dollars in cash by Bobby Ferguson.  He later delivered the money to Kilpatrick.  A Detroit police officer also testified he was threatened by Ferguson after he cited the contractor for not cleaning up property he owned.

Testimony is scheduled to resume Thursday.
