RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Federal prosecutors say former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is not entitled to more details on what they claim he did wrong.
 
McDonnell's lawyers have complained that the 14-count indictment in his public corruption case is too vague. They're asking for a "bill of particulars" spelling out in more detail exactly how he allegedly broke the law.
 
In court papers filed Monday, prosecutors urged a judge to reject the request. They said the indictment fairly apprises McDonnell of the charges, allows him to prepare a defense and enables him to avoid undue surprise at trial.
 
McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the CEO of a health supplements company in exchange for helping promote his products.
