three years after the murder of Robert Wone no one has been charged for the crime.

Opening statements in the trial of three men accused of covering up the fatal stabbing of a Washington lawyer are set to begin later this morning.

Nearly 4 years after the stabbing of Robert Wone, prosecutors say they still do not know who killed the 32-year-old attorney.

But they do believe the three roommates living in the townhouse in Dupont Circle where Wone was found stabbed to death, participated in the crime’s cover-up.

Wone, a friend of one of the housemates, was discovered with three stab wounds to the chest, but according to investigators, there was practically no blood on the body or in the guest room. Prosecutors also say a knife found in the room didn’t match Wone’s wounds, and an autopsy report revealed Wone had been restrained and incapacitated before his death.

The three defendants-Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky, and Dylan Ward – say they do not know what happened and say an intruder killed Wone.

The men are facing charges of conspiracy, tampering with evidence, and obstruction of justice.  They also waived their right to a jury trial, and instead, judge Lynn Liebovitz will hear the case.
