Description

Prosecutor, Frank T. Cullitan, abruptly decides to speed up the trial by announcing he will ask for a postponement of the preliminary hearing.

The preliminary hearing is intended solely to decide if there is "probable cause" to hold the defendant for Grand Jury action.

Skipping the hearing would deprive defense counsel, William J. Corrigan, the opportunity to cross-examine prosecution witnesses before the murder trial.
