Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of a woman in central park. After passersby shouted at the assailant to stop he ran off, killing another person who ran after him. The only real clue they have is the knife he used to stab the good Samaritan and it leads them to Luis Cruz who works as an enforcer for a loan shark. The woman is eventually identified as Emily Dobson, the wife of Michael Dobson who had once been accused of killing his first wife. Dobson and his wife owned a restaurant and he had a $1 million partnership insurance policy should he or his wife die. When the police find a connection with Cruz, the arrest Dobson again but the evidence is circumstantial and a judge rules that any information about the death of his first wife cannot be entered as evidence. McCoy wants to go for the death penalty but Dobson almost convinces them that he's innocent.
