David Camm closing arguments scheduled for Monday morning

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky (WDRB) -- After weeks of testimony, the David Camm trial is coming to an end.

Closing arguments are expected on Monday morning. The jury will be sequestered at a hotel that night.

Monday morning marks the tenth week in David Camm's third murder trial. The jury made up of 12 people -- eight women and four men -- plus several alternates are expected to hear closing arguments that day.  But before that, the jury still has some work to do.

This week, the jury is being allowed to view Kim Camm's Bronco, where the bodies were found. This is the second time they're seeing the vehicle.

But this time, the judge says the jurors will be allowed to "conduct their own investigation" by opening the doors of the Bronco and looking inside.

Prosecutor Stan Levco says, "The Bronco is a critical part of the case, so it will give them a chance to look at it. They've seen pictures of it. They've seen people in it, but they'll get to see it themselves."

Camm was twice convicted of killing his wife, Kim and their two children, Jill and Bradley, in the garage of their Georgetown home on September 28th 2000, but both convictions were overturned on appeal.

Charles Boney, who was convicted of the murders in 2006 and is serving a 225-year-sentence, testified and says Camm shot his family to death. But, the defense team painted Boney as a liar.

Levco says, "Blood spatter is obviously important in this case."

Questions remain -- how did blood get on David Camm's t-shirt? The prosecution says the blood stains across the shirt indicate he was within the range of a gunshot. The defense calls it blood transfer, claiming Jill's blood got on the shirt when Camm reached over her in the Bronco to get his son out of the car to try to save him.

Prosecutors also picked apart the testimony given by one of the defense's star witnesses concerning what's called "Touch DNA."  He testified that he found Boney's DNA on Kim's sweater and underwear, and Jill's shirt.

The prosecution also claimed Camm left a basketball game and killed his family.  But two witnesses said they never noticed Camm leaving the gym.
