Longworth has done well for himself - he's just been re-elected Sheriff - is now married and has a lovely step daughter, Louisa. As Louisa and Rio fall in love, killing Longworth becomes more of a problem but the Sheriff makes it all easier when he arrests Rio for robbing the bank - something he did not do.
