Plot Overview

A schoolteacher who signed a pledge of virginity is brutally raped and murdered following her bachelorette party. The victim may not have been as pure as she made herself out to be, as Annabeth discovers that she had a previous husband who flew up from Houston, and it's his DNA that's all over the crime scene, leading the team to charge him with rape and murder. When the grieving fiancee shoots and kills the accused killer in the courtroom, it seems that he may be charged with involuntary manslaughter, but the case is seen in an entirely new light when it's discovered that the two men knew each other.
