Closing arguments are expected later this morning in the trial of three men accused of covering up the fatal stabbing of D.C. lawyer Robert Wone.

After 21 days of trial and testimony from 40 witnesses, both sides will present their final arguments to Judge Lynn Liebovitz.

Attorney Robert Wone, 32, was killed four years ago in a townhouse in Dupont Circle. The three housemates living there - Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky, and Dylan Ward - face charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice and could face more than 30 years in jail if convicted.

The three men waived their right to a jury trial so Liebovitz will decide their fate. The judge has given each defendant an hour for their attorneys to make closing arguments and given prosecutors a little more time for closing and rebuttal arguments.
