Law & Order: Purple Heart

A cabbie is found murdered in what appears to be a robbery; however, Briscoe and Logan uncover his involvement in a number of get-rich-quick schemes. During the trial, much of the evidence appears to be circumstantial against one of the victim's partners -- until McCoy and Kincaid find a surprise witness at the last minute.
