Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Joyce Weber and her son Billy who were found shot in their beds. Her eldest daughter Jenna survived the attack but the father, Ron Weber, says he was out drinking and passed out in a local diner. Weber had been having a hard time of late. His alcoholism was getting the better of him and he had lost his job, something he had failed to tell his wife. He was worried about how he would care for his family and meet his responsibilities as the head of the family. Dr. Olivet confirms that he fits the pattern of a family annihilator and ADA McCoy proceeds with the prosecution. Part way through the trial however, Olivet begins to have doubts leading the police and the DA's office to take a second look at Jenna Weber's boyfriend Chester Manning. Written by garykmcd

Sergei Yentakov: No hard feelings. Mrs. Weber did what she had to do.
Lennie Briscoe: Yeah, except in this country, her decision's supposed to be final. You're not supposed to offer her money to change her mind.
Sergei Yentakov: No, no, no, detective. The wrong way around. Mrs. Weber came to me. For $10,000, license would be mine. Like I told my wife: the old country, the new country, are not so different after all.
