LEBANON, Ind. (WDRB) -- There was an unexpected delay Thursday in David Camm's third murder trial. 

The delay lasted more than an hour and a half when the court realized that Charles Boney's former girlfriend, Mala Singh Mattingly, gave a statement to police that neither the prosecution nor the defense had reviewed.

Camm's attorney Richard Kammen blamed the previous prosecutor, saying it absolutely should have been disclosed, calling it a failure on the state's part but not blaming the current prosecutors.

The defense team even came in an hour early Thursday morning because Mattingly is from Trinidad and the defense team had not had a chance to interview her.

Court resumed a few minutes before 11 a.m.

Jurors later heard from a tattoo artist and former inmate with David Camm in state prison who claimed that Camm confessed to the murders, saying he had issues with Kim Camm.  The defense pointed out that the inmate did that for his own benefit, and that he served less than half of a 40-year sentence.
