Ind. Courts - "Special prosecutor appointed for Camm trial: Stan Levco is former Vanderburgh County prosecutor"

Matt Thacker of the New Albany News & Tribune has the breaking story here. Some quotes:

NEW ALBANY — Spencer County Judge Jonathan Dartt appointed former Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco on Wednesday as special prosecutor for the David Camm case.

Levco began as chief deputy prosecutor in Posey County in 1972 and served as judge for a short time before joining the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office in 1980, according to a profile in the Evansville Courier Press. Levco was elected prosecutor in 1990 and served until he lost his bid for re-election in 2010. He then became a special prosecutor for the state.

Levco has extensive experience with high-profile cases. At least three men have been sentenced to death in murder cases where he was involved in the prosecution. Two of those men were accused of murdering their wives and families.
