It had taken a year to straighten out the details of the Marley trial. There'd been rumors that he was hiding out in the Grand Cayman Islands. Other rumors said that he was a soldier of fortune in Cuba. But now, the trial of Marvin Marley was ready to resume with the defendant in absentia.
"Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?"
"You could be held in contempt."
"All right, I'll tell the truth."
"State your name."
"What do the initials stand for?"
"Cut the crap!"
"The witness is dismissed!"
"Call the next witness."
"Hoya! Hoya! Docket #2521...."
"No, you dummy! The nest witness!"
"There are no more witnesses."
"The prosecution rests, your honor."
"The defense rests, your honor."
"That's it! The case is dismissed. Court adjourned!"
So that was it! Marvin Marley was going to get away with the murders of his clerk and his wife. It's no wonder there's no justice in this world.
