Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who says that at one time he got in the habit of working late to escape his wife's wrath, has once again taken refuge — this time at the rectory in St. Patrick's Catholic Church.
The couple's marriage is a key element of the defense, which suggests they could not have engaged in a criminal conspiracy because they were barely communicating.
McDonnell testified that he doesn't believe his wife had an affair with Williams, but that they had developed an intense, emotional connection to which he had been oblivious.
The marital tension worsened in late 2011, McDonnell said, when he would often come home to his wife's overblown complaints about her staff.
McDonnell said his wife yelled over the phone at assistants and became angry with him when he told her she shouldn't treat the staff so badly.

The United Nations says the death toll from Syria's civil war has risen to more than 191,000 people killed between March 2011 and April 2014.
The figure is the first issued by the U. N.'s human rights office since July 2013, when it documented more than 100,000 killed.
The U. N.'s top human rights official, Navi Pillay, who oversees the Geneva-based office, said Friday the new figures are so much higher because they include additional killings from earlier periods, as well as deaths since the last report.
Campers can also look forward to comedy shows, art installations and dance performances on multiple stages across the campground, which is equipped with a pool, a ropes course and cabins for those city slickers less inclined to pitch a tent.
