Former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling admits he's a "little nervous" because his "life is on the line." Skilling will be back on the stand today at his fraud and conspiracy trial.

Yesterday, he told jurors he had no clue the company was about to flame out. He says he left the company he took credit for building because he was burned out and troubled about its falling stock price.

Skilling declared that he's "absolutely innocent."

Skilling and company founder Kenneth Lay are accused of repeatedly lying to investors and employees about Enron's financial health. Prosecutors say the men knew fraudulent accounting created a facade of success.

Lay aims to testify later this month.
