Episode Summary

The episode starts out with Kevin Meredith (Brian L. Green) and Joanne Leigh (Bobbie Eakes) kissing in a room with Carter Addison (Dick Van Dyke) watching them through the window with a pair of binoculars. He finally realizes that his lover is stepping out on him. He walks over to their apartment room, lets him self in, and waits for Kevin Meredith to go take a shower before he enters the bedroom and stabs her to death. He leaves the knife on the floor and goes back out into the hall and calls the front desk saying "there is a woman screaming for help, something terrible has happened" and takes his bag with the bloody clothes in it. Kevin comes out of the shower and finds a knife with blood all over it; picks up the knife and looks over at the bed and sees Joanne dead while someone at the apartment comes in and sees him holding the murder weapon. It turns out Carter Addison is the judge presiding over the trial. Matlock becomes very suspicious when Carter asks him to step down to let another lawyer take his place. Later in the episode Carter goes back and burns the bag with all of his bloody clothes in it. Matlock however beat him to it. He had replacements put there by Tyler Hudson and is able to present the real clothes in court. The prosecution then moves for dismissal.
