Puzzle through the ethical dilemma of a spouse accused of murder and decide: do you believe your spouse or the evidence?


You’re sitting on the couch, when you hear a knock on the door. The police have arrived to arrest your spouse— for murder. This accusation comes as a total shock, but their fingerprints were found on the murder weapon. Your spouse insists they’re innocent. Should you believe your spouse, even though the evidence against them looks damning? Alex Worsnip takes a look at this classic ethical dilemma.

Lesson by Alex Worsnip, directed by Emily Howells and Aaron Brady.
