Elderly, frail Jenny Moran is found dead in her flat and police initially suspect a burglary gone wrong. Jenny's grand-daughter Connie tells Ronnie that Jenny's live-in carer Cecile has disappeared, having stolen a clock, but Cecile claims the clock was a present and accuses Connie of firing her because she would not obey her instructions and starve Jenny to death. She backs up her claim with written instructions. The police discover that Connie, a potential bankrupt, has inherited Jenny's flat and she is charged with murder. Her lawyer Vijay Prasad submits that the accusation is vague and that Connie could easily have smothered her grandma if she wanted. Then Connie gives evidence, stating that her grandmother was in great pain and killed herself for the release. She is very convincing and it seems likely that Jake will fail to secure a guilty verdict.
