The man is Slim returning to Laramie but Kelleher tries to take him to the law until Slim overpowers him and then returns his gun. When Jackson is murdered in front of witnesses, all fingers point at Kelleher. Kelleher claims that he was confronting a cowboy on his property at the time of the murder but the Judge refuses to believe Kelleher. The Judge won't even provide a delay in the trial so his daughter Julie heads off in search of Slim hoping she can return in time with him. By the time they get back to town, the trial has been held and Ev Kelleher hung for murder. But things are not what they seem and Slim and Julie set out to prove someone else murdered Marv Jackson and that the town was in a hurry to hang the wrong man. ... Written by DarSpi

Slim Sherman alibi witness
17 February 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Laramie episode has John Smith on the way back to Laramie when a rather angry Hugh Sanders confronts him and accuses him of working for another rancher trying to run him out. It takes a bit of convincing but Smith does it and he rides on to Laramie.

In the meantime said rancher is shot dead with Kathleen Freeman giving eye witness testimony it was Sanders. Which sends Sanders daughter on her way looking for the alibi witness. Diana Millay finds Smith and they return to her town where a trial has already been held and the ends of justice served. Judge George Mitchell is a believer in speedy trials and not big on due process.

Of course it all gets resolved in the end and it's Smith that does the resolving. There's also a nice surprise ending, a bit unexpected but nice.

A nice story about the swiftness, but not the sureness of frontier justice.
