When the deceased's wife arrives, the people on the wagon train learn that the murdered man has a dark past, and this could be a case of Cain & Abel - or perhaps something or someone in the dead-man's past came home-to-roost.

Conducting the trial
18 September 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After facing down a lynch mob in Part One, Part Two is the business of the trial itself.

Henry Daniell proves to be one merciless prosecutor. His role as I remember is very much like George MacReady in Knock On Any Door. But Henry Hull proves that the law is not some ivory tower ideal. In an ending worthy of Perry Mason, Hull not only wins acquittal, but exposes the real murderer.

As Daniell shined in Part One, Hull takes over Part Two of this episode. You know he's going to have a thriving law practice out in California if he wants one.
