Perhaps you should read it more closely as Witton flirts with facts. Did you read the letter he wrote to Thomas which says Handcock admitted shooting Heese but, when they were cleared of this charge, he didn't mention it to his counsel. This would suggest Witton knew that this would only add to the evidence against them. However, he maintains a consistent line in the trial in "following orders of a superior" and acting in self defence. That the truth may be stretched is a given.
