David Camm leaves the Boone County Courthouse after his acquital.
ROCKPORT, IN (WAVE) - A judge ruled Floyd County's auditor will have to pay the majority of disputed bills from David Camm's third murder trial.
Camm was acquitted in October 2013 of killing his wife Kim and their children, Brad and Jill.
Attorneys for Floyd County and David Camm appeared before Judge Jon Dartt, the Spencer County judge who presided over the trial last fall. Dartt ruled Floyd County Auditor Scott Clark must pay $140,000 in unpaid bills submitted by Camm's defense team. In January, Clark told WAVE 3 News questionable bills totaled $420,000.
Throughout the hearing Thursday, Dartt became agitated with Clark for failing to communicate and followup about expenses Clark deemed questionable.
Since Camm's acquittal in the murders of his wife and two children, Clark has withheld payment on some bills from Camm lawyers Richard Kammen and Stacy Uliana. Clark cited a lack of documentation and payments to a lawyer and paralegal that he contends were not authorized when the defense lawyers were appointed.
Some expenses may be reimbursed by a state public defender fund, but the bulk has been paid for with Floyd tax revenues and casino revenue sharing money.
