Bill and Hillary want to commit the crime of the century so they put together a plan to rob the United States gold reserve at Fort Knox. They carefully put the plan together and spend months revising it and practicing for the big day. On the day of the robbery, Bill goes off to carry out the plan while Hillary waits at home for him to return. Bill successfully carries out the robbery but, unfortunately, he shoots and kills a police officer while making his escape from the bank.

Choice 1 They will both be convicted of the robbery and the murder
Choice 2 They will both be convicted of the robbery but not the murder
Choice 3 Bill will be convicted of both and Hillary will be convicted of the robbery only
Choice 4 They will be acquitted of both charges
