A judge has granted acquittal on several charges in the Robert Wone case, but the trial will continue.

Judge Lynn Liebovitz granted acquittal on charges of tampering with evidence against Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky, NBC4's Pat Collins reported. The judge denied acquittal of the same charge against Joseph Price.

The judge also denied acquittal of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice charges against all three men.

The judge said that the decision should not be interpreted as a verdict on any other charges in the case.

The defense team will now present its case in court.

Wone was stabbed to death in a Dupont Circle row house nearly four years ago.

On Wednesday, the Maryland Medical Examiner testified for the prosecution. He said there were no signs that Wone tried to defend himself. He also believes the knife found at the crime scene was not the murder weapon.

No one is charged in Wone's murder. But the three housemates are accused of covering it up.
