David Camm Murder Case Recap

On September 28, 2000, Indiana State Police were called to the home of David and Kimberly Camm in Georgetown, Indiana around 9:20 p.m. David Camm, a former Indiana State Trooper, called in the emergency, saying someone had killed his wife and children, Brad and Jill. Three days later, on October 1st, David Camm was arrested for their murders.

After a trial lasting nine weeks in early 2002, a jury from Franklin County found Camm guilty of murdering his family and a judge sentenced him to 195 years in prison.

In August 2004, while Camm was serving time in the protective custody unit of the Indiana State Prison, the Court of Appeals overturned the jury's verdict, citing improper testimony at trial. That testimony concerned past affairs, come-ons and flirtations between Camm and 12 women. The Floyd County prosecutor at the time of the first trial, Stan Faith, used the testimony to show motive.

In November of 2004, Floyd County prosecutor Keith Henderson announced he would re-file charges against Camm. The  trial was moved to Warrick County because of the pre-trial publicity. A start date of August 8th was set.

David Camm is currently on home incarceration on a $20,000 bond.

Camm has always maintained his innocence. He says he was playing basketball at his church gym when his family was murdered. More than 10 players testified to seeing Camm at the gym.

Kim, Brad and Jill Camm were each shot to death in the garage of the family's home. They had just arrived home from Brad's swim practice.
