Delicate defensive line

ABC News reported on the opening of the murder trial of Robert Blake, quoting UGA law professor Ronald Carlson on the defense’s likely strategy. “The defense will have to walk a delicate line in suggesting there was a conspiracy in the killing of Robert Blake’s wife without naming the suspected mastermind,” he said. “The defense will say two things: (a) He didn’t do it and (b) Someone else did it and we have a pretty good idea that Bonny Lee Bakley was killed as a result of malice and of the person involved in the slaying.”
