No sooner had she done so did she regret ever having coming out of the alley. It appeared that the road wasn't as empty as she had perceived. Two shots. That was all that it took to literally blast her arms apart, ensuring that she would never see the light of day again. With her last atom of energy, she threw the subtle knife at the attacker. The throw targeted the attacker as if it was a self-destructing missile, and pierced the insubstantial skin. The attacker screamed with pain, and scuttled away from the lifeless body. As the steps of her attacker faded into the distance, a deathly silence settled on that dark alley leaving only a feeling of death as her body slowly began to decay. There it would remain for two hours, lifeless, alone. A man rushed into hospital, the outer part of his left abdomen sprayed with burgundy coloured blood. There was a blood leak in the man's artery. "HELP ME," the man shouted. Doctors and Nurses rushed to the man's expiring body. Quickly and efficiently, they brought a streamlined stretcher for him. This was the man's darkest moment. He felt that he was going to pass away. He thought about his family, his divorced wife, and he thought about his 1-year-old son who would have no father if he died. ...read more.


The police questioning Tom was disgusted by the way that Tom was answering. He was answering as if he was drunk. The police officer told Tom that his wife was near certain death. Tom put up a fake sigh of shock to the officer. The police officer performed a lie test on Tom. The results are very strange. They sounded wrong. The police officer believed that Tom is guilty of convicting the murder of his wife, but the Lie detector test suggested that Tom is not guilty of the Murder. In the test Tom suggested that Robert killed his wife. He says that Robert was jealous of Him. He said that Robert was jealous that he still had a wife, and was not divorced. Because of this, he said that Robert, from the day that he got divorced hated Him and in particular his wife. Therefore, he killed her. The police officer whose name is Matthew Cleaves believed that a court had to be set up in order to distinguish who the real murderer is, because both stories sound plausible enough. The officer told both men that they would require judges to defend each other against the murder of Mary Longhall. Ambulances rushed to the aid of the dieing woman. What they didn't know was that they had no chance of saving her. ...read more.


"Enter Defendants," said the judge. The defendants entered, both with their faces done, their arms by their side. Tom was dressed smartly with a pure black suit. The suit looked fairly new, although the side pocket was slightly torn. Matthew on the other hand wore a blue shirt with black jeans. This made him look quite untidy. His eyes were red. He looked as if he had had no rest the day before. What happens. (BRIEF) Next the man tells the story of how his friend stabs him. His friend denies this. He says that the man is lying, and killed his wife. The man denies this and says that his friend killed his wife, and when he tried to stop the friend, the friend stabbed him. The incident is taken to court. No verdict is reached. Then the readers learn about the man's past. The court resumes, and a verdict is made. The murder is actually done between friends. A murder scene investigation is created. Both stories sound plausible enough and when it comes to a trial both suspects accuse each other which results in a hung jury. The case has to be re-opened and this time prosecutor John Thorn (T. Busfield) tries everything to discover the truth. Finally he comes to the conclusion that both men have acted together and in a real court room drama he tries to convince the jury of his conspiracy theory.
