Judge Orders County to Pay $140,000 in Camm Costs
A judge has ordered the Floyd County Auditor to immediately pay about 140-thousand dollars in unresolved legal bills for the defense of a former Indiana state trooper acquitted of charges he killed his wife and two young children.
Special Judge Jon Dartt on Wednesday ordered the auditor to pay the amount to settle most of disputed claims presented by attorneys who represented David Camm during his third murder trial last fall.
Dartt says county officials should have communicated better with Camm’s attorneys so Wednesday's hearing could have been avoided.
A central Indiana jury acquitted Camm in October in the 2000 murder deaths of his wife, Kim, and their two children, Brad and Jill.
