LEBANON, IN (WAVE) - After eight weeks of testimony and just over one day of deliberations, a Boone County, Indiana jury has found David Camm not guilty of murdering his family.

Camm, 49, was on trial for the third time for the shooting deaths of Kim Camm, 35, and the couple's children, 7-year-old Bradley Camm and 5-year-old Jill Camm. Their bodies were found on the night of September 28, 2000 at their Georgetown, Indiana home.

Camm was convicted of the murders in 2002, but the Indiana Court of Appeals overturned the conviction two years later. He was charged again in 2005 and convicted a second time in 2006. An appellate court overturned the second conviction. 

Charles Boney is serving a 225-year prison sentence after he was convicted of the Camm family murders in late 2005. More than four years after the murders, DNA tied Boney to the crimes.

During this latest trial, Boney testified that he provided Camm with an untraceable gun on the night of the murders and was outside the garage at the Camm's home when David Camm fired the shots that killed his family.

Camm has maintained that he was at his church playing basketball at the time his family was killed. He contends Boney or someone else committed the murders.

After the verdict was read on Thursday, defense attorney Richard Kammen asked Special Judge Jonathan Dartt to allow Camm to leave the courthouse with his family, be processed through the Boone County jail and be freed. The judge granted that request.
