S04E11 Judge, Jury and Executioner
Crime, Drama, Mistério
Jane and Maura investigate the death of judge Kathleen Harper who collapsed and died as she entered the courtroom where her teenage daughter Ashley was playing the part of a prosecutor in a mock trial. The cause of death is anything but obvious but the autopsy reveals Harper had received an injection of Ritalin, a drug she normally took. She also had a broken rib but that likely occurred when lawyer Roger Torson administered CPR. A few dabs of paint leads them to a stairwell where she had obviously been attacked. Elsewhere, Jane becomes concerned when she opens her mother's mail and learns of the $27,000 she owes the IRS.
