Tajomaru is captured shortly afterward and is put on trial, but his story and the wife's are so completely different that a psychic is brought in to allow the murdered man to give his own testimony.  He tells yet another completely different story.

Finally, a woodcutter who found the body reveals that he saw the whole thing, and his version is again completely different from the others.
