BOONE COUNTY – An ex-state trooper accused of killing his wife and two children more than a decade ago will have his third trial in connection with the case.

Jury selection began Monday in the trial of David Camm, which has been moved to Boone County due to the amount of exposure the case has gotten in southern Indiana over the years.

Camm faces murder charges in the deaths of his wife and two children inside the family’s Floyd County home in 2000. He’s been convicted twice, but both convictions were overturned on appeal.

Camm resigned from the Indiana State Police and was off the payroll as of May 8, 2000. The murders occurred more than four months later.

Prosecutors have tried for more than a decade to prove that Camm fired the gun that killed his family. He’s maintained his innocence throughout the process. During the second trial, Charles Boney was named as a suspect and eventually convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Jury selection could last more than a week; the trial could last months. The case has already cost nearly $3 million to prosecute.
