Storyline

Detectives Lenny Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the death of a Chinese restaurant owner who was delivering a take out order. The delivery was to a basement apartment where a homeless man frequently slept at the bottom of the stairs. They track him down and while he's a suspect he tells the police that several teenagers had hassled him the night the delivery man was killed. As well, one of the teens had a key to the apartment. They trace it to Mitch Regan and several of his friends who had been using the vacant apartment as a place to hang out. They ordered the Chinese food with no intention of ever paying and McCoy wants to seek the death penalty against Regan, the only one who has reached the age of majority. DA Nora Lewin isn't comfortable given that the defendant is barely 18 years old and now has a major decision to make. Written by garykmcd

Takeout order leads to death
9 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Four boys and a girl from Queens out for a good time with no money decide to call for Chinese takeout and rob the delivery man. It goes bad though when the stories are compared and the oldest of them, the only one legally an adult turns out to be a stone cold killer and the one who actually did the deed.

The victim owned a Chinese Restaurant and a last minute order placed by these kids had him deliver after the restaurant officially closed and led him to his demise. Not just testimony but forensic evidence separates Alex Feldman from the rest of the herd as the one who gets the murder charge.

The kid is a serial killer in the making. District Attorney Dianne Weist has to decide about the death penalty, not popular in liberal Manhattan.

Of course even since Pataki restored capital punishment we haven't had an execution yet in New York. That doesn't detract from this being a fine episode.
