Virgil Kincaid, the owner of a hardscrabble ranch, is accused of murdering Lorna Parrott. Her six-year-old son identifies Kincaid as the killer but, during Kincaid's subsequent trial, identifies a different man. The jury finds Kincaid not guilty, but the Velardi townspeople hound the rancher, killing his stock and destroying his water barrels despite Ringo's efforts to shield him from their wrath. Written by
