Camm’s defense has high hopes for new DNA evidence

Defense: DNA puts Charles Boney at the murder scene

(Continued)

LEBANON —

While the DNA evidence is now nearly 13 years old, Uliana said technological advancements have resulted in DNA up to 30 years old still cogent in a courtroom.

“As long as you have the DNA present, and you use the right techniques, you can get that DNA and you can find out whose it is. The time, it does make it harder. Things degrade and wear off, but it is not impossible. The time passage, I don’t think hurt the integrity of these results”

But no matter the age of the new evidence or where it was tested, Uliana said the jury will have to consider what the evidence reveals.

“It is a lot harder to grasp David Camm being the shooter when Charles Boney’s DNA is all over that scene,” Uliana said.

The trial’s jury selection is scheduled to being Monday. Uliana said she expects jury selection to last at least the duration of the week and the entire trial to span possibly two months.
