Briscoe and Green investigate the murder of Ron Harker and his daughter Caitlin. His wife Stephanie was three miles away at the time with her friend Doris Nichols. By the time the police catch up with her, Doris is dead and Stephanie is claiming she was Doris' next victim. They learn however that it was Stephanie who was fooling around and that her husband was about to institute divorce proceedings. She is Canadian however and before they can arrest her, she flees back home. McCoy and ADA Abbie Carmichael come up against the Canadian government which has a policy of not extraditing people to foreign countries where they may face the death penalty. McCoy agrees but as they continue the investigation, they find that she not only hired Nichols to kill her husband but that she killed Ron Harker's first wife. As a result, DA Adam Schiff decides to go after the death penalty. Written by
