Storyline

Kathy Dawson is a private nurse working for the St. John's. One night while she was out, the man she was taking care of, Peter St. John, has what appears to be a heart attack - and dies. When it's determined to be murder, Kathy is the prime suspect. Ben and an attractive redhead get into the Courthouse elevator, it malfunctions and they spend a few minutes alone together, to Ben's obvious delight. Ben arrives at Nurse Dawson's arraignment after taking her case with quite a retainer, the $250,000 engagement ring the deceased, Mr St. John, had given to her. As the Hearing gets under way, in rushes the new A.D.A. - it's the attractive redhead from the elevator, Julie March. The deceased's sister (Lacey St. John) tells A.D.A. March that the ring was actually stolen out of the safe, so the police seize it as evidence. Ben goes to the St. John residence and speaks with the sister, and Mrs Warren (the longtime housekeeper), he realizes that something just isn't adding up, and he's being lied...
