A married preacher and the woman he had been having an affair with are found brutally murdered. A local religious fanatic, Mose Cooper (director Pat Paterson), is charged with the crime, found guilty and sentenced to die in the electric chair. However, at the last minute he is reprieved and the authorities arrest a local nutcase named "Crazy Billy" for the crime. The tension increases as residents start to wonder if either one (or neither one) actually committed the crime.
