Jury finds David Camm not guilty of murder

October 24, 2013

After 13 years and three murder trials, David Camm has been found not guilty of murdering his wife and two young children.

Camm, a former Indiana state trooper, was accused of killing the family members in 2000. This is his third trial for murder; his previous convictions have been overturned on appeal.

The jury returned the verdict early Thursday afternoon.

The case has been tried in three counties: originally in Floyd Circuit Court, then Warrick Superior Court, with this latest trial occurring in Boone County.

A special prosecutor had to be appointed for this trial because of a cancelled book deal involving Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson. Henderson planned on writing a book about the case after the second trial, but cancelled his contract in 2009 once a new trial was ordered.
