Officials weighing admission of evidence, testimonies in Camm case

Next hearing is set for April 19

ROCKPORT — Former Indiana State Trooper David Camm, who has been convicted twice in the murder of his wife and two small children, appeared in a Spencer County court Monday for a number of hearings.

Special Prosecutor Stan Levco, of Perry County, said the hearings made for a long day for court officials. He said the most relevant issues raised during the day’s proceedings were motions made on what will be admissible in the upcoming trail.

The court is still determining to what extent testimonies from expert witnesses and evidence surrounding Charles Boney, who was convicted in 2006 of the Camm family murders and is serving a 225-year sentence, will be offered during the trial.

The judge did not rule on either of the motions during the hearings, but Levco expects the judge to make a determination before the next hearing slated for April 19.

Levco said from the prosecution’s standpoint, some of the evidence surrounding Boney’s involvement is admissible and some is not, but said he did not want to speak specifically of the evidence.

The trial is scheduled to begin in August in Boone County, located north of Indianapolis.

Camm was convicted in 2002 and again in 2006 for the slaying of his wife, Kim, 35, and their two children, Jill, 5, and Bradley, 7, in the garage of their Georgetown home Sept. 28, 2000.

Both convictions were later overturned, leading to a third trial. Camm was originally arrested and charged in the murders Oct. 1, 2000.

His first trial was held in Floyd County and the second in Warrick County. It was moved because of media attention surrounding the case, which has been both local and national.
