Jury selection began Monday in the Boone Circuit Court courtroom in the murder trial of David Camm, 49, a former Indiana State Trooper accused of killing his wife and two children in a southern Indiana home in 2000.
Camm’s lawyers claim that Kimberly, 35, Brad, 7, and Jill, 5, were murdered by Charles Boney, who was convicted of the murders in January 2006 and sentenced to 225 years in prison. Boney is expected to testify at this trial, according to newspapers and TV stations that have covered the Camm case.
The trial was moved to Boone County because of extensive coverage of Camm’s two other trials. Camm’s first conviction was overturned in March 2002 by a state appeals court. His second conviction, in March 2006, was overturned by the Indiana Supreme Court in June 2009.
Extensive security is planned during the trial, which is expected to take eight weeks. Access to the third and fourth floors of the Boone County Courthouse will be restricted as a result. A security presence is also expected at the Boone County Office Annex, 116 W. Washington St., Lebanon, where prospective jurors will await their turns in the selection process. It could take two weeks to chose a jury.
