Camm defense wants to examine garment before DNA testing

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A judge has granted a defense motion in the David Camm trial calling for permission to examine a garment before the prosecution performs DNA testing.  That examination has to take place before June 15.

Camm, a former Indiana State Police Trooper, has twice been convicted of killing his wife, Kim, and their two children -- Brad and Jill -- in the garage of their Georgetown, Ind. home on Sept. 28, 2000.

Sam Lockhart, Camm's uncle -- and one of his biggest supporters -- has said the prosecution is trying to hide the truth by limiting the testimony of Charles Boney in Camm's third trial.  Lockhart believes Boney murdered Camm's wife and children.

Boney became a suspect prior to the second trial and was eventually convicted; however, both of Camm's convictions have been overturned. Camm and Boney were tried separately.

The DNA is linked to a dispute over how blood got on David Camm's T-shirt. Prosecutors say it spattered onto the shirt when he shot the victims. Camm's lawyers say the shirt was bloodied when he tried to give his son CPR.

Special Prosecutor Stan Levco says the prosecution and defense also went over the jury questionnaire to be sent to all potential jurors in Boone County.

Camm's next hearing will be on June 18.
