LEBANON, Ind. (WDRB) -- Jury deliberations are continuing in David Camm's third murder trial.
Jurors got the case late Tuesday afternoon but left the Boone County Courthouse shortly after 5 p.m. They will resume their work Wednesday morning, WDRB News reported. Jurors will deliberate from 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. daily -- unless they decide to continue longer.
Earlier on Tuesday, prosecutors showed jurors pictures of Kim Camm's bloody body, saying her body had been moved by David Camm and that her pants were pulled off to make it look like she was sexually assaulted. There was crying in the courtroom as families on both sides saw the graphic photos of Kim and Jill's dead bodies.
They also cried when hearing about Kim, Brad, and Jill Camm, and how old they would've been now and how their lives were cut short. Prosecutor Todd Meyer said that if Kim Camm were alive today, her children would be young adults and she would likely be the officer of a big accounting firm.
Camm looked down several times in court and also shook his head hearing the closing arguments. Meyer says Camm wanted out of the relationship, and that was his motive to kill his family.
Meyer also brought up that Charles Boney, who was convicted of the murders in 2006, wrote a note connecting him to Camm.
Meyer also says Camm's alleged actions after the murder show he's guilty -- not calling 911, placing Charles Boney's sweatshirt under Brad, and being unaccounted for during a six-minute period on the evening of September 28, 2000.
The prosecution also pointed to Camm's shirt, which it says has high velocity blood splatter that they say show the killings were at close range -- within four feet.
At one point Tuesday, defense attorney Stacy Uliana complained that the prosecution was treating Boney, who she maintains is the killer, as a witness.
The defense also said David Camm's emotional call to his former police post shows he was not faking his sadness when he discovered his family was dead.
The defense expressed frustration with the aiding and abetting language being added to jury instructions, meaning even if the jurors think Camm helped Boney, they could still convict him of three counts of murder.
Uliana ended defense closing arguments by saying Charles Boney can take away Camm's family, the state of Indiana can take away Camm's freedom, but he still has his truth and his knowledge.
Camm was convicted in two previous trials, but both convictions were both overturned on appeal. Second trial defense attorney Kitty Liell was among several people in the courtroom supporting Camm.
