Joyce, did you forget this was simply a hearing to determine if the defendants should be bound over for trial?

A prosecution team is not going to put all their cards on the table, so to speak if the case does later go to trial.

Although the case was not bound over for trial, there was enough evidence initially presented to incarcerate Wyatt Earp and Doc for a significant length of time in Behan's jail.

BTW...I seem to remember? some years ago, Max Roberts located evidence that the grand jury received only prosecution evidence and declined to order a trial.
