ROCKPORT, IN (WAVE) - Defense attorneys for David Camm are trying to get, what they claim, is new DNA evidence into the former Indiana State Trooper's third murder trial. Thursday, they argued the case in a Spencer County court.

Meanwhile, Camm's father Donald Camm said when his son's third trial begins later this month, he fears he may not be able to be there, but he said he and his son are a little more hopeful the third time around.

"My health is such that I couldn't even go to the hearing and my wife can't either," Donald Camm said.  Thursday was a tough day for the elder Camm. He said he wanted to be at his son's DNA evidence hearing in Spencer County, but says at age 82, his ailing health is keeping him away. The same is true for his wife, who is now in a nursing home. Still, he's well aware what his son's attorneys were arguing about. Defense attorneys again tried to prove Charles Boney was the lone killer of David Camm's wife Kim and their children Brad and Jill.

They called a Dutch lab tech who claims a new touch DNA technology has uncovered a considerable amount of Boney's DNA on both Jill and Kim Camm's clothing. Special Prosecutor Stan Levco said the defense expert's results are not reliable and that forensic testing outside the country shouldn't be admissible because it doesn't meet U.S. trial standards.

As Kim Camm's family has always maintained, "You can't change the evidence," Frank Renn, previously told WAVE 3 News, "They (defense) can point directions all they want to point at, but it's not going to change nothing."

Donald Camm said even though he can't be there for his son, he still encourages him over the phone while remaining realistic. "He has hope, but to really know down deep that he's going to whip this thing, he can't hold up that kind of hope."

Boney is serving a 225-year sentence in the 2000 triple murder. Camm's third trial later this month moves to Boone County, northwest of Indianapolis.

The hearing on the DNA evidence will continue Friday morning.
