LEBANON, IN (WAVE) - After 29 days of testimony the defense has rested its case in David Camm's third murder trial.

The defense says Camm's story has been the same all along, he did not kill his wife, Kim, or their children, Brad and Jill, while the prosecution claims just the opposite. 

Camm's ailing father, Don made it to the courtroom for first time this trial.

"One way or another I had to get close to my son because I know what the truth is and he shouldn't be here to start with," said Don Camm. 

Camms' wife Kim and their two children Brad and Jill were found shot to death in September of 2000 in their Georgetown, Indiana home.

Prosecutors say this all could come down to nine tiny drops of blood found on David Camm's T-shirt. Blood evidence that the two sides have very different reasons for being there. 

The state says it's high velocity blood spatter and it only would have gotten there if he was nearby when his daughter Jill was shot.

"The real evidence that got him convicted both times is still there," said Frank Renn, Kim Camm's father. "They can't change that."

Camm's family and his lawyers believe the blood transferred to the shirt from Jill's hair as Camm reached into the family Bronco to try to save his son.

Charles Boney is already serving life sentences for the murders. The defense says Boney pulled the trigger, Boney says Camm did, he just sold him the gun. 

Boney testified four weeks ago against Camm. During the trial the judge reprimanded the two for staring each other down and making the jury uncomfortable. 

"I think that if they look at it like I look at it, like most people probably should look at it, we want is the truth and the truth is David's guilty," said Renn. "That's all we can ask for."

"If we'd have the truth 13 years ago we wouldn't be here today," said Don Camm. 

Once again soon Camm's fate will be in the hands of a jury. This time one in Boone County, Indiana.

Rebuttals start on Tuesday.
