Curry v. Superior Court (People), G047000

The magistrate judge properly admitted the testimony of the investigator at the preliminary hearing, which included the expert opinions of two doctors who believed the victim died from nicotine poisoning, where, despite the investigator's lack of scientific training, his testimony was sufficiently reliable to justify the admission of the doctors' expert opinions into evidence. The opinions provided ample probable cause to support the magistrate's decision to bind defendant over for trial on the charges of murder and insurance fraud.
