She takes her son there and has him read a book in another room while she performs.

Then, her ex-husband shows up, and threatens to take her son away by going to court.

When Helen Shelly is called to the stand, she says she was with Doug Templitt on the night Jason Hardiman was shot and when someone entered the hospital room and killed Jason Hardiman.

Because they spend so much time together, Matlock assumes that she grabbed Doug's trench coat by accident.

He picks up the knife, looks over at the bed and sees Joanne dead, and then someone at the apartment comes in and sees him holding the murder weapon.

It turns out Carter Addison is the judge presiding over the trial.
