It was an intruder that stabbed Robert Wone, one who entered through an unlocked back door. That's their story, but prosecutors seeking to convict Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward don't buy it.

Sandbox Clue Overlooked in Robert Wone Case?

Glenda King noticed something strange when the one-time nanny and housekeeper at 1511 Swann Street NW arrived for work one August day in 2006.

Getting Stabbed ‘Actually Not Painful,’ Expert Says in Wone Case

As far as we know, Robert Wone stayed really still for his murderer. Even as the killer plunged a kitchen knife, estimated at between four-and-a-half to five-and-a-half inches long, through him three times, one time with enough force to break through the bone of his sternum.
