Today, Judge Lynn Liebovitz delivered her verdict on the conspiracy/tampering/obstruction charges in the Robert Wone case. She found the defendants Dylan Ward, Victor Zaborsky, and Joseph Price not guilty on all counts, while still noting that it’s “very likely” that Price altered the knife used to murder Wone. She also rejected both the intruder theory of the crime as well as Michael Price, brother of Joseph, as the murderer.
The three housemates in whose house Wone was killed still face a wrongful death suit by Kathy Wone, Robert’s widow. The rules of evidence for civil cases are different than those for criminal cases, so watch for different information to be considered in that proceeding.
