O.J. trial resumes with audio expert's testimony

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Las Vegas jury has been hearing testimony from an FBI audio analyst in O.J. Simpson's robbery-kidnapping trial.

Prosecutors hope the testimony can authenticate recordings made by one of the key players in the case. Thomas Riccio says he's given authorities more than 10 hours of audio recorded before, during and after the alleged robbery.

Riccio arranged the meeting between Simpson and a pair of memorabilia dealers last year that led to the charges. Simpson and Clarence Stewart are facing a dozen charges including armed robbery, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion. Riccio has received immunity from prosecution for agreeing to testify against Simpson.

Riccio sold the recordings to a celebrity gossip Web site before police obtained them. He testified at a November hearing that he saw a gun in the hotel room where the meeting took place.
