FARGO, N.D. (AP) _ The defense attorney in the trial of a Fargo surgeon accused of drugging and raping his wife is questioning the timing of events in the case.
Dr. Jon Norberg is accused of having sex with Dr. Alonna Norberg without consent after giving her propofol, a powerful anesthetic. He says she made up the story to help her in a looming divorce and child custody case.
Defense attorney Robert Hoy continued his cross-examination of Alonna Norberg Tuesday by pointing out she made several calls to an attorney and met with the lawyer before the alleged assault.
Alonna Norberg, who is also a doctor, testified earlier she didn't realize Jon Norberg was giving her propofol because he called it by its brand name, Diprivan.
Alonna Norberg is scheduled to resume testimony Wednesday.
