Storyline

Briscoe and Green investigate the murder of two teenage girls, one of whom is found wrapped in plastic sheeting in a house under renovation. She was raped and strangled and also had a high level of the drug GHB in her system. When they learn that one of the victim's sister, Laura Kendrick, is also in New York they begin a frantic search eventually finding her in the hospital, beaten and drugged. She points the finger at her boyfriend, Peter Williams, who may in fact be responsible for a number of brutal rapes and murders. It appears that Kendrick may have been also been involved in the assaults but she claims Williams forced her to participate. In order to get a conviction, Jack McCoy agrees to a plea bargain with a minimum in return for her testimony but then learns that he may have made a deal with the devil. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Some viewers will undoubtedly recognize the plot being based on the true story of the "Barbie & Ken Killers", Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo (AKA Scarborough Rapist). Homolka and Bernardo were arrested in 1993. In 1995, Bernardo was convicted of the two teenagers' murders and received life in prison and a dangerous offender designation, the full maximum sentence allowed in Canada. During the 1993 investigation, Homolka stated to investigators that Bernardo had abused her, and that she had been an unwilling accomplice to the murders. As a result, she struck a deal with prosecutors for a reduced prison sentence of 12 years in exchange for a guilty plea for manslaughter. Homolka scored 5/40 on the Psychopathy Checklist, in contrast to Bernardo's 35/40. However, videotapes of the crimes were later found that demonstrated that she was a more active participant than she had claimed. As a result, the deal that she had struck with prosecutors was dubbed in the Canadian press the "Deal with the Devil". Public outrage about Homolka's plea deal continued until her high-profile release from prison in 2005. See more »
