LEBANON, Ind. (WDRB) -- As testimony continued for a fourth week in the triple murder trial of David Camm, defense attorneys wanted to know if Camm's former co-worker misled Camm to get evidence.
Camm, a former Indiana state trooper, is on trial for allegedly murdering his wife, Kim, and their two children, Brad and Jill, in the garage of their home in Georgetown, Indiana on Sept. 28, 2000. He was convicted twice but both convictions were overturned on appeal.
On Wednesday, James Biddle, a retired Indiana State Police lieutenant, testified for the second day in a row. Defense attorneys continued to question him about his interactions with Camm in the days after the murders.
Biddle was one of the officers who collected evidence at the crime scene. On Tuesday, Biddle told jurors that he was involved in a physical confrontation with Camm when Camm and his uncle, Sam Lockhart, demanded to enter the home to retrieve personal property.
Biddle said Camm was told that the home was still a crime scene.
"He said something to the effect of, 'Jim, we just want to get into the house to get those things,'" Biddle recalled.
Biddle testified that he refused to let him in. That's when, he said, Camm "chest bumped" him.
On Wednesday, jurors heard a phone conversation between Camm and Biddle. During the conversation, Biddle assured Camm that police were doing all they could to catch the person responsible for the murders and would not rest until that was done.
This conversation was recorded eight hours before Camm was arrested.
Camm's attorney tried to paint Biddle as being deceptive while expressing comforting words to Camm even though he knew Camm was a person of interest in the case.
Biddle admitted that it was part of his job to be deceptive.
Camm's attorney also pointed out that Biddle told the jury he was friendly with Camm, but failed to show him any sort of physical comfort like the other troopers did at the scene.
The defense also attacked the logistics of the investigation and wanted Biddle to admit that crime scene investigators decided that Camm was guilty after "five minutes" of being at the scene. Biddle denied those accusations and claimed officers followed protocol.
Prosecutors say Biddle was doing his job and made some objections as the defense questioned the officer. The prosecutor took up for the responding officers and said it was the most "thorough investigation" he had ever seen.
The prosecution is expected to wrap up its case this week. We're told Charles Boney, who has already been convicted of murdering Camm's family, will most likely not testify this week.
