Ozzie Beers is a boxing manager who killed Amos Robinson.
He offered to sell his fighter, Amos Robinson. to Jeb Cutler because he wanted to flee to California with his Robinson's wife, Fannie. When Robinson refused to throw a fight and go along with the sale Beers shot and killed him.
Though Fannie Robinson was originally arrested for the crime, Detective William Murdoch uncovered the truth and Beers was arrested. Murdoch tricked him in claiming that he killed in self-defense, but as he used specialized bullets, suggesting premeditated murder, his defense would be torn apart in court.
