Ind. Courts - "David Camm lawyers, prosecutor argue over Charles Boney testimony in next murder trial"

The latest news on the upcoming third trial of David Camm is reported today in a long story by Grace Schneider of the Louisville Courier Journal that begins:

ROCKPORT, IND. — Defense lawyers and prosecutors argued in court Monday over how much testimony Charles Boney should be allowed to give during former Indiana State Trooper David Camm’s third trial in the murder of his family.

Camm defense lawyers Richard Kammen and Stacy Uliana argued that Boney, who was convicted in January 2006 on charged in connection with the three slayings, slaughtered the family.

And they urged Special Judge Jon Dartt to give them leeway during the trial to argue that Boney’s criminal background suggests he carried out the murders by himself, without any help from Camm.

“We can’t have a fair trial … unless we can tell the jury the true extent” of Boney’s history as a violent criminal, Uliana said during the afternoon hearing.

Special Prosecutor Stanley Levco and a co-counsel Todd Meyer, the Boone County prosecutor, told Dartt that they intend to introduce evidence showing David Camm’s was involved both as a principal and as an accomplice in the murders.
