The prosecution's star witness could offer no hard evidence of any improper deals with former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling.

Former company finance chief Andrew Fastow was back on the stand
yesterday in the Houston fraud and conspiracy trial of Skilling and
Enron founder Kenneth Lay.

Fastow was grilled about whether there were any documents proving Skilling's involvement in side deals.

Fastow said he couldn't remember, leaving jurors to decide whether to take an admitted liar's word that he had discussed those deals with Skilling.

Fastow's cross-examination is scheduled to resume Monday.

Houston-based Enron filed for bankruptcy protection in December of 2001.

Fastow in 2004 pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy and agreed to help prosecutors.

Lay attorney Michael Ramsey is slated to cross-examine Fastow on
