High-Profile Murder Case Goes To Trial

By Patrick Madden

A D.C. Superior Court judge is expected to hear opening arguments this morning in the trial of three men accused of covering up the fatal stabbing of a Washington lawyer.

On August 2, 2006, prominent D.C. attorney Robert Wone was found stabbed to death in a friend's townhouse in Dupont Circle. Prosecutors say Wone had been restrained, sexually assaulted, and then killed.

To date, no one has been charged with Wone's murder, but the three men who lived at the house; Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky, and Dylan Ward, have been charged with conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and tampering with evidence. The defendants say an intruder killed Wone.

Prosecutors say the men know who killed the lawyer and participated in a cover-up, including cleaning up the crime scene, waiting to call police, and disposing of evidence.

Last week, the three men waived their right to a jury trial and D.C. Superior Court Judge Lynn Liebovitz will decide the case.
