The government rested its case against Winans.

At the conclusion of its case, the government dropped two counts of the 61-count indictment against former Wall Street Journal reporter R. Foster Winans, his roommate, David Carpenter, and stockbroker Kenneth P. Felis. Four other counts were dropped against the co-defendants but not against Winans. The defense is expected to call its first witnesses today.
