Troop hung Bib Kindle for murder. His wife Jessica enters the Birdcage proclaiming she was the one who committed the murder. Troop takes her to the Marshal's office to hear her story but is not sure she did it. A ruckus at the Birdcage forces Troop to arrest two men who have a reputation for trouble. Troop sends Johnny to the Kindle place to look for further evidence. Kindle's attorney Les Courtney known to work with outlaws bails out the two men pushing them to kill Troop. When Troop stops by the Birdcage, one of the men tries to distract him but Johnny wounds the shooter. He found a rifle still loaded and rusted. Troop goes to Jessica's hotel room to confront her. Courtney arrives and decides to kill both of them to eliminate Troop. However, Troop is able to shoot Courtney as Courtney shoots Jessica. She confesses that both her and her husband were guilty as she dies. Written by Anonymous
