Train Robbery in Sedalia Oct. 1878

In 1878 the Missouri Pacific Railroad had been suffering theft from it's train cars by employees and others. Several silver bullion bars were stolen and a Joseph Toothman and a John Comby were arrested for the theft of those bars. Does anyone know what came of their trial? The were held in jail in Sedalia that much I know, but did they go to prison or were they found not guilty?
