More witnesses for the prosecution took the stand Tuesday in the corruption trial of Eugene Mullins.

The former aide to Todd Stroger is charged in a kickback scheme involving government contracts.

Federal authorities say Mullins accepted thousands of dollars while he was working for the former Cook County Board president. In exchange, he steered government contracts to acquaintances.

Mullins denies the charges.
