An outwardly-friendly bomb-sniffing dog scurried about the Boone County Courthouse rotunda Thursday morning, pausing occasionally for a curious sniff. It was the first day of testimony in David Camm’s third trial on charges that he shot his wife and two children to death. The case was moved to Boone County because of extensive publicity before and after Camm’s first two trials in southern Indiana courtrooms. For more of the story, see Friday's Lebanon Reporter.
