The woman who served as chief of staff to Virginia's former first lady says she never saw any hint of a romantic relationship between her boss and wealthy businessman Johnnie Williams.
Mary-Shea Sutherland testified Wednesday in the corruption trial of former Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen.
Defense attorneys have said Maureen developed a crush on Williams as her marriage was crumbling.
But Sutherland said she saw no signs of that.
She said the McDonnells still seemed to be in love, and she described a "lovely" Valentine's Day poem Bob wrote for his wife.
The McDonnells are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from Williams in exchange for promoting his company's dietary supplements.
