Ind. Courts - "Ex-trooper David Camm's trial winds down"
Grace Schneider continues her reports in the Louisville Courier-Journal with this story today - some quotes:
LEBANON, IND. — Testimony in David Camm’s triple-murder trial wrapped up Wednesday afternoon after nearly eight weeks and a long parade of witnesses, giving way to a final stage that will decide the fate of the former Indiana State Police trooper from Georgetown.
Special Judge Jonathan Dartt told the jury of eight women and four men that on Monday they’ll hear closing arguments, receive final instructions and start deliberations while being sequestered. They’ll deliberate daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Boone County Courthouse until they reach a verdict.
Looking exhausted and relieved, prosecutors and defense lawyers filtered out of the government building saying they couldn’t say precisely what jurors took away from the mountain of evidence and witness testimony since late August, particularly experts’ opinions about how Jill Camm’s blood droplets were deposited on her father’s T-shirt. * * *
Jurors were told that they will be given time during the next two working days to review evidence presented during the last two weeks. They will also have a private viewing of the Bronco again.
Before leaving the courtroom, they were told they should pack clothes to bring Monday because they will remain sequestered, staying overnight in a hotel, until they deliver a verdict.
