Storyline

When Stone's men rob the stage, Deputy Bates catches Breed Hawkins only to be killed by him. Stone makes a drunken Pecos Kid think he did it. Bill Carson gets a confession that Breed was the killer but it comes too late as the Sheriff and his posse had already hung the Kid. When the Kid's brother takes revenge by killing the posse and the Sheriff, Bill heads out to face him. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>
