Columbo Villains -  Cathleen Calvert and Patrick Kingsley

Last Words to Columbo: "That son of a bitch!"

Cathleen Calvert (played by Shera Danese) and Patrick Kinsley (played by David Rasche) are tired of sneaking around to see each other. However, Cathleen cannot leave her wealthy husband, Clifford Calvert (played by Barry Corbin), due to their prenuptial agreement. To solve this problem, the two lovers hatch a plan to get rid of Clifford by murdering Howard Seltzer (played by Raye Birk), an investment broker who is suing him. They then frame Clifford for the crime. To carry out the plan, Patrick drives to Seltzer's house and gains entry by lying about needing to make an urgent phone call due to a dead car phone. Once inside, he shoots Seltzer and plants evidence to implicate Clifford in the murder. Shera Danese is also known for her marriage to actor Peter Falk. The couple met in 1977 while filming an episode of the series, and they were married in 1977. They remained married until Falk's death in 2011.
