Towards the end of the film, when the true murderer has the heroine trapped in a garage with a running vehicle -- implicitly threatening her with death by carbon monoxide inhalation -- she could have easily stopped the SUV by taking off some garment (first to mind comes her sweatshirt), rolled it up, and stuffed it up the SUV's exhaust pipe, but she doesn't.
It is hard to tell whether this is an oversight on the script writer's part, or a mistake they intentionally ascribe to the character: On the one hand, missing this is perhaps plausible for a present-day young woman, who may presumably not be much "into" technology and cars; on the other hand, she is apparently supposed to be a rather bright and well-informed person, and the "kill the engine by stuffing something up the tailpipe" trick is such a hoary old staple of Hardy Boys and many, many other detective stories that a young ambitious district attorney ought perhaps be supposed to have read at least some of these stories when she was (even) young(er), so it's uncharacteristically stupid of her to overlook it.

A prosecuting attorney in a serial killer case needs to become the defense attorney when her close relative-a former judge- with whom she lives, is accused of being the killer.
And if you think that is far fetched wait for all the other ludicrous plot twists and turns.
The picture looks like it was made on a shoe string budget, and the only reason I give a vote one above the lowest mark is i) I saw the film to the end ii) there was a half decent song at the conclusion, and iii) the actor playing the former judge- given the atrocious story and script-did not do so bad compared to all the other hams.
What a load of tripe!
