Storyline

Olivia Bessemer, a seventy three year old woman, is accused of poisoning her step-niece Carmel with the intent of harming her. The prosecution allege that Miss Bessemer disapproved of Carmel, a Roman Catholic divorcee who had married her nephew with whom she lived and had raised from childhood after his parents died. The defence case is that Miss Bessemer did buy some poison but it was used to dose meat thrown to some noisy dogs next door which had long been causing a nuisance. Some of this poison accidentally contaminated food eaten by Carmel. Written by Alan Briscoe
