FARGO, N.D. (AP) _ A prosecutor says a Fargo surgeon accused of
drugging and raping his wife showed ``extreme indifference to the
value of human life.''
Dr. Jon Norberg is charged with gross sexual imposition and
reckless endangerment. He's accused of injecting Alonna Norberg
with an anesthetic and having sex with her against her will.
Prosecutor Gary Euren told jurors in his closing
argument Tuesday that Alonna Norberg was unconscious and did not
have the ability to give consent.
Said Euren, ``It's about Alonna Norberg being drugged with
propofol and Dr. Jon Norberg having sexual intercourse with her in
various forms. That's the case.''
Defense attorney Robert Hoy said in his closing there's no
evidence to support allegations and Alonna Norberg is not credible.
Said Hoy to jurors, ``Do you believe Alonna Norberg?''
