LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Closing arguments in David Camm's third murder trial will be delayed until Tuesday and will not happen Monday as previously scheduled, WDRB News has learned.
Instead, the judge, prosecutors and defense attorneys will meet Monday morning to hammer out the final details of jury instructions, both Camm's attorney Richard Kammen and Floyd County Sheriff Darrell Mills said Sunday.
The latest changes come at the end of Camm's third murder trial. Camm, who had left the Indiana State Police months before the crimes, is accused of fatally shooting his wife Kim, and children Brad and Jill in the garage of their Georgetown, Indiana home more than thirteen years ago.
His previous two convictions were overturned on appeal to higher courts.
Day after day, for weeks on end, David Camm has walked a zig-zag pattern down a ramp that leads him into the basement of the Boone County, Indiana courthouse.
By Tuesday, jurors will have had a second chance to get a close look at a key piece of evidence -- Kim Camm's dark-colored Ford Bronco. It's believed Kim was shot just outside the passenger door, and her children -- Brad and Jill -- were shot inside on the night of September 28, 2000.
Boney's response: "Everyday, I suppose it will always be that way."
Charles Boney was convicted of the murders in 2006. He testified that he's been a "Pinocchio" -- never telling authorities the whole truth.
On the witness stand, Boney's latest version of truth had him claiming he was simply the gun seller and that Camm was the triggerman.
Boney claims he was at the Camm home on the night of the murders, but only to deliver and sell the second of two handguns he claims to have provided David Camm. In this latest version of Boney's story, he says after killing Kim, Brad and Jill, David Camm tried to shoot him but the gun jammed. That's when Boney claims to have tripped in the garage and touched Kim Camm's shoes. (A statement that the defense will later use against him).
The bulk of this case, however, has centered around blood spatter analysis, with jurors hearing from what seemed like an endless string of expert witnesses for both the prosecution and defense -- each claiming his or her analysis is correct and that the other's is flawed.
Prosecutors point to blood spatter on David Camm's shirt and shoes, claiming it indicates Camm was within four feet of the victims during the shootings. The defense claims those are transfer stains from when David Camm returned home and discovered his family had been killed.
Camm's defense team's witnesses pointed to touch DNA - claiming it shows Boney's DNA was under Kim Camm's fingernails, on her underwear, shirt and Jill's shirt.
"It's hard to believe they could dig up something that nobody's seen for 13 years whether it changes something I don't know," said Nick Stein, the Renn family's attorney.
Kim Camm's family attorney has his doubts. And last week, a prosecution rebuttal witness claimed the DNA test results were flawed. Despite this back and forth, Camm's alibi all along has been that he was playing basketball during the time the murders occurred.
