Judge Lynn Leibovitz ruled on the defense motion to dismiss in the obstruction trial today, dropping the evidence tampering charges against Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky.
At the start of the trial, Ward, Zaborsky, and Joe Price, residents of the Swann St. NW house where Robert Wone was found murdered in August 2006, were each charged with conspiracy, evidence tampering, and obstruction of justice for their actions immediately following the discovery of Wone’s body. Leibovitz found that the prosecution had not sufficiently made its case on tampering specifically against Ward and Zaborsky. As a result of today’s ruling, Ward and Zaborsky are now only on trial for conspiracy and obstruction, while Price remains accused of all three charges. No murder charges have been filed against any of the three.
