JUDGE: New DNA evidence will be allowed in third David Camm trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Late Friday afternoon, a special judge ruled that new DNA technology will be allowed in David Camm's upcoming third trial.

It comes as a victory for Camm's defense team, which says the new evidence will help exonerate David Camm.

Camm is a former Indiana State Police trooper who has twice been convicted of killing his wife and two children inside the garage of their Georgetown, Ind. home.

It happened in Sept. 2000.

Both convictions have been overturned by higher courts. Charles Boney was named as a suspect in the second case and was eventually convicted of the crime.

Camm's defense was fighting to use "touch DNA technology" in his third trial, which starts in just a few days -- but prosecutors said it's unreliable.

Meanwhile, jury selection for David Camm's third trial is scheduled to start first thing Monday morning in Boone County, Indiana.
