Simon struggled at first to register what Kaylee was chattering about. Resting his pen on the clipboard, he spoke carefully and deliberately. “While I think that Jayne is the sort of man who might do such a thing, the clinical evidence proves that he didn’t rape or kill Mrs. Murchison.”
Kaylee slipped down off the counter and made her way over to where Simon sat. She leaned against the cabinet next to him with her arms crossed. “I know he talks mean an’ all, but he ain't as bad as you think…”
“And you’d be a character witness for Attila the Hun. Still, I don’t think Jayne is guilty this time.” Simon yawned and rubbed his tired eyes for a moment.
