So - The creators of both the original play and the musical specifically wanted the action to be that Jud's death was an accident that happened because of his own actions, thereby making it somewhat justifiable that the people of the community were willing to so quickly find that Curly was innocent of killing Jud. The difference between that and how It seems the incident is portrayed in this revised version of the script creates a big change from the intent of the writers who created both the musical and the play the musical was based on.

Agreed that it creates a change but my sense is that the original story ends intentionally with a bitter-sweet taste of frontier justice.
