Carl Truitt is on trial indicted for the murder of his business partner, Candice "Candy" Cavanaugh. Truitt and Cavanaugh operated a small but increasingly popular restaurant. Having survived for two years during which most new restaurants fail, the third year held solid promise for long term success. But unbeknownst to Truitt, his partner had a gambling addiction. To feed her addiction she constantly needed funds. Having exhausted all other options, she contacts a small time local hoodlum, Ray Gotti. When she did win, she had to pay back his loans, plus interest at twenty-five percent. Candy soon found herself unable to repay Gotti. After missing several payments, Gotti refused to advance any more money and started applying the pressure. Having no other sources of funds, and now owing Gotti over $250,000, Candy embezzles from her partnership with Truitt. In charge of all financial matters, Cavanaugh covered up her embezzlement for a time; but Truitt finally found out. Candy Cavanaugh's nude body is discovered in the restaurant freezer. Because her death had the ear marks of a mob hit, Gotti is arrested and charged with her murder. Not long afterward, the charges against him are dropped and Truitt is charged with her murder. The testimony and evidence at trial present facts whether Truitt murdered Cavanaugh out of jealousy and rage, making it look like a mob hit to implicate Gotti. Or do they indicate that Gotti used his connections to frame Truitt? You, the jury, must decide.
