Acquitted ex-Ind. trooper sues police, prosecutors

David Camm suing prosecutors and investigators


A former Indiana State Police trooper ultimately acquitted in the slayings of his wife and two children is suing prosecutors, investigators and others for malicious prosecution, false imprisonment and other counts.

An attorney for David Camm filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in New Albany on Friday, the one-year anniversary of his acquittal in his third murder trial in the 2000 shooting deaths of his wife, Kim, and their children, 7-year-old Brad and 5-year-old Jill. Two earlier convictions were overturned on appeal.

The 50-year-old Camm spent 13 years in prison.

The 72-page complaint seeks unspecified damages.

Messages seeking comment were left for a spokesman for the Indiana attorney general's office Sunday.

Another man is serving a 225-year prison sentence after he was convicted of the slayings in 2005.
