Town Marshal Sam Voglesong was shot and killed from ambush as he entered the door to his home. Two brothers and another man were arrested a short time later and charged with his murder. The brothers had vowed to get even with the marshal over a previous encounter in which Marshal Voglesong shot one of the brothers.

Two of the suspects were found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison June 20, 1891. The other suspect, who turned state's evidence, went free.
