Indiana Lawyer Rehearing

The Indiana Court of Appeals has accepted an interlocutory appeal addressing whether a southern Indiana prosecutor should be able to stay on the third triple-murder trial of former Indiana State Police trooper David Camm.

Spencer Circuit Judge Jonathan Dartt ruled in January that Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson should be able to continue prosecuting the case, despite a book deal that he had arranged on the case, but cancelled after the Indiana Supreme Court in June 2009 ordered a new trial. Defense attorneys argued it was a conflict of interest requiring his removal, and that’s the issue the appellate court on March 11 decided to hear.

The case is on hold while the appeal is pending. Camm has been twice convicted of the September 2000 murders of his wife and two young children, ages 5 and 7. The Court of Appeals overturned Camm’s first conviction and the Indiana Supreme Court two years ago reversed it again.

This latest appeal is likely to spawn a new request for the state’s highest court, before it ultimately is allowed to proceed at the local level for trial in Spencer County.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
