Judge in Camm trial wants to move things along

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Wearing a bullet-proof vest and handcuffs, former Indiana State Trooper David Camm entered the Spencer County Courthouse in Indiana for a pre-trial hearing.

His uncle, Sam Lockhart, arrived soon after.

"All we want is the truth and once he truth is brought out, we know David Camm will be set free," says Sam Lockhart.

That is what a jury will soon decide.

Camm is accused of killing his wife and 2 kids in their Georgetown, Indiana home in 2000.

His first two murder convictions were both overturned.

On Friday, the prosecution and defense went back and forth about upcoming depositions needed for the trial and testimony from expert witnesses.

Both the prosecution and defense argued in the courtroom that not enough information is being handed over from one another. The judge wants the issues resolved.

A motion was filed asking for a court ordered deadline.

"It was a little more animated than usual and I guess I'll find out how it went when the judge makes his ruling," says Prosecutor Stan Levco.

"The state's trying to get an unfair advantage. They're trying to give their experts the last word, so we're stuck at the time with no rebuttal," says Stacy Uliana, David Camm's attorney.

However, in court Prosecutor Stan Levco says that isn't the case.

The prosecution also filed a motion regarding IU student Jordan Hochgesang, who has been working with a non-profit organization called Investigating Innocence. He recently did an interview with WDRB about David Camm. Click here to see the story.   

"This guy has been wrongfully convicted for the past 12 years and we're just trying to get the word out," says Jordan Hochgesang.

The prosecution wanted to make sure the student no longer has anything to do with future depositions, calling statements he made in the interview prejudicial.

The judge encouraged both sides to get discovery issues resolved quickly so the trial isn't pushed back.

"What is your biggest concern at this point," WDRB's Tamara Evans asked Prosecutor Stan Levco.  "Convicting David Camm," Levco replied.  

"We want it to go in August, but I the state is going to win this motion, quite frankly, it may very well not go in August," says Stacy Uliana.

As for the trial, it is scheduled to begin on August 5th in Boone County, Indiana.
