In Witness for the Prosecution Leonard Vole is arrested for the murder of
Emily French, a wealthy older woman. Unaware that he was a married man,
Miss French made him her principal heir, casting suspicion on Leonard. When
his wife, Romaine, agrees to testify, she does so not in Leonard’s defense
but as a witness for the prosecution.
