 WASHINGTON (AP) — A military hearing on sexual assault accusations against three U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen is being delayed because the alleged victim says she is too tired to testify.

The hearing at the Washington Navy Yard is in recess, but is expected to resume Saturday afternoon.

The woman has testified over three days under heavy questioning about her foggy memory of an alcohol-fueled, off-campus party last year in Annapolis, Md. She also testified in closed court Tuesday.

The woman, who is now a senior at the academy, has complained about fatigue.

The hearing is being held to determine whether the three former football players will face a court-martial.

The woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at an April 2012 party after a night of heavy drinking.
