Camm trial postponed

Jury selection has been delayed for one week in the trial of a former Indiana State Police trooper who has twice been convicted of killing his wife and two children nearly 13 years ago in their southern Indiana home.

David Camm’s third trial will now begin jury selection on Aug. 12 in Boone Circuit Court. The trial is expected to take up to eight weeks.

Camm has been twice convicted of murder; both times the verdict was overturned on appeal. His third trial was moved to Boone County because of extensive publicity during the first trials, held in 2002 and 2006 in Floyd and Warrick counties.

Tuesday, Special Judge Jonathan Dartt, a Spencer County judge who will preside over the trial, approved the delay because new DNA evidence could be presented by the defense.

The judge ruled in May that DNA tests could be done on the shirt Camm wore the day of the shootings.

Defense attorney Stacy Uliana told the Louisville Courier-Journal newspaper that a ruling on whether Dartt will allow the DNA tests to be introduced is needed before jury selection begins.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office will assist in providing security during the trial, which will restrict some access to the third and fourth floors of the courthouse.
