Judge to rule on DNA technology in Camm case

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Supporters of accused killer David Camm believe new DNA technology will clear him in the murders of his wife and two children.

Camm was escorted into the courthouse Thursday morning, wearing handcuffs, an orange jumpsuit and a bulletproof vest.

The judge in the Camm case could rule today whether new technology called "touch DNA" will be permitted in Camm's third trial.

Special Prosecutor Stan Levco says of the new technology, "We feel like it is not reliable.  I don't know that it has ever been done before, the kind of thing that he's doing."

But Julie Blankenbaker, Camm's sister, responds, "He is only saying it is not reliable because it doesn't support the story that he's trying to sell. Which is Charles Boney's story."

Camm, a former Indiana state trooper, has been convicted twice of killing his wife and two children in the garage of the family's Georgetown, Ind. home in September 2000.

Both of those convictions have been overturned by higher courts. Another man, Charles Boney, has also been convicted of the murders.

The defense says that Boney acted alone, but prosecutors believe Camm hired him to kill his family.
