Season Eight[]

In the Wind[]

When he learned that Donald Newhouse, a client of his to whom he sold medicines, had an affair with his wife and killed her in revenge, it is unknown why he killed his daughter and tried to kill his son but most likely didn't know about the romance.

When the witness in his case, his neighbor, who is an elderly woman named Louise Russo, retracts the place where Bradstone murdered his wife and the case is reopened.

Knowing that Russo can have him executed, along with the help of another prisoner, he pays a man named Phillip Hale to run over Russo.

When the connection of how Phillip was paid is discovered and the new evidence against him, he is finally executed.
