NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana county is buckling under the mounting costs of trying a former Indiana state trooper in the deaths of his wife and two young children.
Juries have twice convicted David Camm in the September 2000 slayings of his wife, Kimberly, and their children, Bradley and Jill. Both convictions were overturned on appeal, but Camm now faces a third trial.
Floyd County Police chief Ted Heavrin tells the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., (http://cjky.it/XlS8tW ) that the county's legal costs have already hit $3.3 million and could rise another $1 million with the third trial.
Heavrin says the costs have prevented all employees but police and firefighters from getting raises for six years. He says bridge and road repairs are done only in emergencies.
Camm has maintained his innocence.
