LAS VEGAS (AP) - Lawyers for O.J. Simpson are expected to take another crack at cross-examining an alleged robbery-kidnapping victim after his first time on the stand was cut short by illness.

Bruce Fromong could be called to the stand again, a day after the 54-year-old memorabilia dealer took ill while testifying.

His lawyer says Fromong became "lightheaded, dizzy and started to sweat" before Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass sent the jury out of the room and suspended his testimony.

Several other witnesses also could be called. They would set the stage for the jury to hear from Thomas Riccio, the colorful collectibles broker who arranged a hotel room meeting involving Simpson, Fromong and collectibles peddler Alfred Beardsley a year ago.

Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart have pleaded not guilty to 12 charges including kidnapping, armed robbery, coercion and assault with a deadly weapon in the confrontation at the Palace Station casino hotel.
