The final moments in the life of Washington attorney Robert Wone were argued today in the trial of the three men accused of trying to cover up the homicide.

Dr. Farzad Najam, of the George Washington University Hospital, testified for the defense of Joe Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky.

The victim had no defensive wounds.

Prosecutors had argued that unexplained needle marks on Wone may mean he was somehow immobilized before the attack. But Najam was called to the stand to refute that theory.

The stabbing likely made Wone unconscious within seconds, said Najam.

No one is charged with the murder of Wone.

Trial observers said the case, which is being tried before a judge not a jury, may wrap up this week.
