Thirty-two-year-old Robert Wone was murdered in 2006.

By Marcus Rosenbaum

A D.C. judge has dropped some of the charges against two of the three men accused of covering up the 2006 murder of Robert Wone.

Wone had been staying at the Swann Street townhouse of Joseph Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky the night he was murdered. The men are not accused of killing him, but they are charged with covering up the crime.

The defendants say they are in a committed relationship with each other, and the prosecution theorizes they are protecting the murderer.

Today Judge Lynn Liebovitz acquitted Zaborsky and Ward of tampering with physical evidence. Price still faces that charge, and all three men still face conspiracy and obstruction of justice charges.

The men had waived their right to a jury trial, and Liebovitz says her ruling should not be taken as an indication of how she ultimately will rule in the case.

The defense started presenting its case today.
