ROCKPORT, IN (WAVE) – A southern Indiana judge has decided to allow evidence form new DNA testing in the upcoming trial of David Camm.
In a ruling issued late Friday, Judge Jon Dartt said the type of testing Camm's attorneys want to present is "slowly gaining more acceptance in the United States." Dartt also said that an expert for the state said the Indiana State Police have used such testing from time to time in their own lab.
Dartt ruled the defense will have to have its scientific expert, Richard Eikelenboom, "provide all DNA evidence/matches with statistical data for it to be relevant and so the jury can assess its weight."
Camm is being tried for the third time for the September 28, 2000 murders of his wife Kim, and their two children, Bradley and Jill, at the family's home in Georgetown, IN. Appeals courts overturned jury verdicts that convicted Camm of murder in 2002 and 2006.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Monday in Boone County, northwest of Indianapolis.
