Storyline

Hawkins defends a woman who is accused of murdering her wealthy elderly husband, who was bedridden with an incurable disease. She admits to not giving him the medicine he needed, but refuses to discuss her motives. While many believe it was a mercy killing, an ambitious assistant district attorney is trying to prove she did it because of the two million dollars she would inherit. Written by rbecker28

Murder not mercy
3 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's Julie Harris needing the assistance of Billy Jim Hawkins in this Hawkins story. She's the wife, the much younger wife of a college professor who was a shrewd investor during his life and accumulated quite a fortune in his life. Now he's terminally ill and bedridden and needs constant care and medication. When he doesn't get it he dies.

This might be a mercy killing, but there's an ambitious prosecutor in Sam Elliott who sees murder not mercy with the fortune hanging in the balance. That's why Harris needs the services of Jimmy Stewart quite badly.

Stewart in the episodes I've seen so far gets Perry Mason like acquittals. The shows are great, but they rely too much on Stewart's likability and charm. They haven't provided you with much in the way of alternative suspects as Mason shows and movies do.

Still because of Stewart this show and this episode was a good one.
