Jane and Maura investigate the death of judge Kathleen Harper who collapsed and died as she entered the courtroom where her teenage daughter Ashley was playing the part of a prosecutor in a mock trial. The cause of death is anything but obvious but the autopsy reveals Harper had received an injection of Ritalin, a drug she normally took. She also had a broken rib but that likely occurred when lawyer Roger Torson administered CPR. A few dabs of paint leads them to a stairwell where she had obviously been attacked. Elsewhere, Jane becomes concerned when she opens her mother's mail and learns of the $27,000 she owes the IRS.
