TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A onetime state trooper acquitted in the killings of his wife and two young children said in his first public appearance since his acquittal that he's still grieving for his slain family.

WTHR-TV reports David Camm also said during Wednesday's appearance at Indiana State University that it feels good not to be "surrounded by steel bars and concrete" after 13 years in prison.

Juries convicted Camm twice on murder charges in the September 2000 killings of his wife and two children at the family's southern Indiana home. But those were overturned on appeal and an eight-week retrial last fall ended with a not-guilty verdict.

Camm fought back tears as he described how he still mourns for his family, saying "Time doesn't heal. It just becomes a part of you."
