ALFRED, Maine (AP) - Testimony resumes this week in the trial of an insurance businessman charged with promoting prostitution at a Zumba fitness studio in Maine.

Prosecutors intend to call more law enforcement officers to testify Monday and Tuesday about the investigation into Mark Strong Sr. and dance instructor Alexis Wright.

Both Strong, who's from Thomaston, and Wright, who ran the Kennebunk studio, have pleaded not guilty. Wright will be tried later.

The case attracted international headlines after it was reported that Wright had ledgers indicating she made $150,000 over 18 months and had more than 150 clients.
