The Justice Dozen
A woman is murdered in her own apartment under strange circumstances. At the crime scene the detectives encounter Dmitriy Taranov, her husband. He offers no alibi – he is simply shocked. Detective Leonid Iliyich Makhov decides to take Taranov under arrest until the cause of the crime becomes clear because the neighbors say they heard the spouses having a fight right before the murder. The young detective Tishakov, who is investigating the murder, refers the case to court to be tried as a common crime. But the accused demands a jury trial. He believes that only the justice dozen can hand down a just verdict.
