NEW ALBANY —
NO SHOCK FOR FAITH
Stan Faith — who got a conviction which was later overturned when he prosecuted Camm’s first murder case — said he wasn’t surprised by the not guilty verdict Thursday in Boone County.
“I expected it, because it came back in 10 hours. It’d taken 30, 40 hours before, so it wasn’t a surprise to me,” he said. “As long as the constitution is upheld, I’m fine with it.”
Faith was criticized during the third trial for his handling of investigating the first trial. On Thursday, Camm’s defense attorney Richard Kammen told the media Faith was negligent, in that he hadn’t looked into Charles Boney, who was convicted of the murders in 2006, as a suspect during the first trial.
“There’s armchair quarterbacking. I do wish that we would have found out the name of [Charles] Boney in the first trial,” he said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t, and that’s my deepest regret on the whole thing. We followed the evidence the best we could and did the very best we could do.”
