The Courthouse Where Plan B Equals Pain. Old D.A. X has Mr. Holmstead on the stand. On the night of Jean's murder, he thought she was out with friends, even though it was unusual that she didn't leave him a message. Finally, around midnight, he started calling her friends. Then at 3 AM, he called the police. Old D.A. X asks if Mr. Holmstead had knowledge of his wife's affair. Mr. Holmstead resembles Ted Turner. He replies, "I had learned about it a week before." How did he find out? Well, Mrs. Holmstead had been in therapy, and her therapist told her to tell him. What happened? Mr. Holmstead responds, "We had some very severe arguments. Ending in a re-commitment by both of us to our marriage." What about Carrington? Mr. Holmstead says his wife planned to break off her affair. Old D.A. X asks, "Do you know if she did that, sir?" According to the husband, his wife had three conversations with the defendant, but when Holmstead starts revealing the contents of their discussion, Ellenor objects. It's hearsay. But wait -- Joey doesn't want to object, so the objection is withdrawn and the hearsay is allowed to stand. What the heck is he up to, that Heric? Mr. Holmstead carries on: "She said that he was having a difficult time accepting that they wouldn't be seeing each other again." Blah she thought, blah restraining order, blah afraid of him blah. Did she use that word? Yes. "She was concerned he might try to hurt her."
