INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) - The Indiana Supreme Court has denied the state's petition for a rehearing of David Camm's case. The court voted 3-2 Monday to deny the attorney general's request for a rehearing of Camm's appeal of his second murder conviction.
David Camm's wife, Kim, and two children - Jill and Bradley - were shot and killed in the family's garage in Georgetown, Indiana on September 28, 2000.
Camm was charged with their murders and twice convicted. Both convictions were overturned.
The court ruled 4-1 in June that prosecutors inflamed the jury by arguing without any evidence that Camm had molested his daughter.
In June, four of the five supreme court justices said Camm's second conviction was tainted for two reasons: the state improperly argued Jill Camm was molested and David Camm was responsible, and a witness was allowed to testify about what Kim Camm said the night she was killed regarding the time she expected her husband home.
The supreme court's latest decision means Camm could go free unless Indiana prosecutors decide to re-try the case for a third time.
Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson wasn't immediately available for comment.
