NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – Everyone who thought the David Camm case was over when he was cleared of his family's murders in October is finding out that's not exactly the case.

Camm's name has been in the news since September 28, 2000, the day he came home to find his wife Kim and their children, Bradley and Jill, shot to death inside the garage of their Georgetown, Indiana home. Twice convicted, Camm had both of those convictions thrown out before a jury in Lebanon, Indiana found him not guilty in Fall 2013.

But the price of justice has not yet been paid. Our newsgathering partner The News & Tribune reports there were still $659,000 in bills yet to be paid by Floyd County for the Camm trial as of mid-January, with all but $51,800 owed to the defense.

WAVE 3 News has covered the Floyd County Auditor's questioning of the receipts submitted to the county for reimbursement in the past.  Now he will be making those arguments in court.

Tonight on WAVE 3 News at 11, the unusual step in this most-unusual case that has the county making its arguments to a judge about how it pays its bills. In addition, the Floyd County Council president explains what happens to the already financially-strapped county if it has to pay the full amount.

That's coming up after NBC News examines the Camm case on a special two-hour edition of Dateline Friday tonight at 9:00.
