    The first police on the scene testified today in the Robert Wone homicide trial.

    Wone, the Washington lawyer found dead in a Dupont Circle home, had been spending the night with a friend from college in August 2006. That friend, Joe Price, and his two roommates, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky are on trial on charges they tried to cover up the murder.

    No one is charged with the murder.

    In testimony Monday, police discussed what they found on the night of the murder.

    There was "no evidence of a break-in ... no sign of a ransacking, nothing broken, nothing taken," said MPD evidence technician Curtis Lancaster.

    One of the officers on the scene testified about the way the suspects were acting that night.

    "They were whispering ... and those glares made me suspicious ... later I told a homicide detective about it," said Sgt. Charles Patrick.

    The trial is expected to last about a month.
