LEBANON – A Boone County jury began deliberations Tuesday in the third murder trial of a onetime Indiana State Police trooper accused of fatally shooting his wife and two young children at the family’s southern Indiana home in 2000.
Before jurors began deliberating the fate of David Camm, defense attorney Stacy Uliana said in her closing argument that the state initially missed the real killer.
Charles Boney is serving a 225-year sentence for murder and conspiracy in the case. Uliana contends that he was the killer. Prosecutors contend that he conspired with Camm in the slayings.
Prosecutor Todd Meyer told jurors they must connect the dots from evidence they’ve heard to convict Camm.
The deaths occurred about four months after Camm had resigned from the Indiana State Police force to take a job with his uncle.
His two previous convictions of killing his wife, Kim Camm, 35, and their children, Bradley, 7, and Jill, 5, were thrown out on appeal.
His third trial was moved to Boone County because of pretrial publicity in southern Indiana.
Jurors were to resume deliberations at 8 a.m. today.
