HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - After a recess of a few months, testimony is expected to resume in the contentious divorce trial of the chairman of United Technologies Corp.

The estranged wife of George David, who was the company's chief executive until last year, wants $99 million.

Testimony is to resume Monday is Hartford Superior Court where lawyers for Marie Douglas-David are asking a judge to void the couple's $43 million postnuptial agreement.

They have argued that the agreement won't allow Douglas-David to pay her weekly living expenses of $53,000.

The 36-year-old Swedish countess says she has no income. She married her 67-year-old husband in 2002, but the marriage was in trouble just two years later.

The couple signed a postnuptual agreement in 2005 that gives Douglas-David $43 million in a divorce.
