Ben Jaegers robbed a stage taking $200 to provide medical care for his sick wife. A new rogue deputy, Clyde Wilson, who has a no holds barred attitude shoots and kills the wife of Ben when Ben attempts to surrender. Ben wounds Wilson in the leg and runs off to the high hills to hole up. Troop is a close friend of Ben and after hearing what has happened leaves to help Ben. Troop confronts Wilson who has taken control from the older sheriff who has ceded control. Troop tries to talk Ben down with no success. After hearing Wilson and his followers decide they are going to torture Ben if they catch him alive, Troop leaves and sneaks back up the hills to capture Ben by knocking him out. The careless Wilson kills one of his own men before they learn Troop has taken Ben. The posse chases Troop but can't catch him until they are in Troop's jurisdiction. The Sheriff finally finds his strength to retake control from his rogue deputy and Troop is forced to kill Deputy Wilson. Written by Anonymous
