MONTGOMERY, Alabama — (Associated Press) - An FBI agent says Alabama's gambling corruption investigation is related to a 2004 federal probe of VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor and former state Attorney General Troy King.

Agent Keith Baker, who's supervising the current investigation, testified in court Tuesday. He says he was involved in an investigation of McGregor and King that began in 2004.

Baker says things came up in 2004 that brought the FBI to where it is today with the current investigation. Baker's testimony came in a hearing on the current case, but he did not provide details.

McGregor is among 10 people scheduled for trial on bribery and conspiracy charges in June. King announced last year that the FBI had closed an investigation of his office without action.
