Keith Henderson ethics hearing continues; defense attorney admits sister had relationship with David Camm

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Tuesday brought the second day of testimony in the ethics hearing for Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson.

Henderson is accused of negotiating a book deal leading up to the third trial, and then using taxpayer money to cover his legal fees. Henderson counters that there was never anything in writing.

The hearing was moved to the state house in Indianapolis to allow David Camm's defense attorneys to testify. First on the stand today was Indianapolis attorney Stacy Uliana, who represented Camm in his second and third trials.

The hearing started off pretty tame, but things got heated when Uliana was questioned about her personal relationship with Camm. She admits her sister did have a relationship with Camm after the third trial, but then stressed to us after testifying that this is not about any personal relationships, or even David Camm, for that matter.

"This proceeding is about the harm that was done to the Floyd Count taxpayers, and about the harm that was done to my profession -- the legal profession -- by Mr. Henderson's conduct," Uliana said.

"I felt then -- I feel now -- it was a trial tactic to get me off," Henderson said. "Kudos to them. They were successful. But it was certainly related to the appeal that was pending up at the court of appeals. But with that, I don't really want to say any more until after I testify."

Also on the stand today, Henderson's chief Deputy Prosecutor, Steve Owen, called the attorney for the ethic commission a "tool."

All of this stems from Henderson's handling of the high-profile David Camm case. Camm was twice convicted of the murders of his wife and children, but he was eventually acquitted at a third trial. Charles Boney is now serving a life sentence for the crimes.

Camm wanted to be at the hearing today, but told WDRB's Stephan Johnson that people connected to the hearing asked him to stay away, wanting to keep the focus on Henderson.

The hearing is expected to wrap up on Wednesday.
