From The Perry Mason TV Show Book (Revised)
Ed Nelson (Doctor Rossi on Peyton Place) plays Ward Nichols, an All-American football player turned health club instructor. He wants to marry his employer’s daughter niece, Casey Daniels, but his estranged wife Veronica, who also works at the club, has been pressuring Ward for money for secret reasons.

When Casey's father uncle is found crunched with a dumbbell, Ward is eventually accused, causing Perry to arrive just in time to flex his courtroom muscles. (Corrected by 65tosspowertrap, 10/10/2013)
