The famed attorney got an accused murderer off.
Attorney Tom Fitch is best known for defending the Earps and Doc Holliday at the so-called OK Corral inquest. But later, he was involved in a legal proceeding involving another feud. In 1892, Ed Tewksbury allegedly shot and killed Tom Graham outside Tempe. It was associated with the Pleasant Valley War, which had taken place in Apache and Graham counties in the 1880s. The evidence against Tewksbury was strong, but Fitch got a guilty verdict thrown out on appeal. A second trial resulted in a hung jury.
