Indiana Supreme Court hears arguments for third Camm trial

The Indiana Supreme Court heard oral arguments this morning that could lead to a third trial for David Camm.  He's the former state trooper found guilty twice of murdering his wife and two children.

Camm's lawyers want to convince the court to overturn his second murder conviction.  They argued his second trial was unfair, and the conviction should be overturned because of evidence that should not have been admitted in the case.

Defense attorneys also argued jurors in the second case should have been allowed to hear from co-defendent Charles Boney.  Both Camm and Boney were convicted in the murders of Camm's wife Kim and children Bradley and Jill.

It happened in 2000 at the family home in Georgetown, Indiana.  It was the second conviction for Camm, who is a former Indiana state trooper.

Each side had 20 minutes to argue its case before the court. 

Attorney Stacey Uliana told the court that the trial judge should not have allowed prosecutors to claim during the 2006 trial that Camm had molested his daughter shortly before her slaying.

An attorney for the state said prosecutors only suggested that Camm had molested his daughter because Camm's attorneys had suggested that another man was the actual culprit.
