Ind. Courts - More on "David Camm judge orders Floyd County to pay $140K in defense bills"

Updating yesterday's post, Marissa Alter reports for WLKY:

ROCKPORT, Ind. —David Camm's defense team scored another victory in court Wednesday.

His attorneys weren't fighting for his innocence, but to be paid by Floyd County for his defense during the last trial for his family's murders.

"We won in full because we haven't done anything wrong. We gave Dave a good defense and that's what he deserved, and the Floyd County auditor was just refusing to pay without any merit," said Camm defense attorney Stacy Uliana.

In court, Judge Jonathan Dartt ordered Floyd County Auditor Scott Clark to pay defense attorneys roughly $140,000.

That included the cost of mileage, airfare, hotels and food for experts who testified in Camm's third trial for the murders of his wife and kids. * * *

Camm's uncle, Sam Lockhart, covered his defense in the first two trials. This time the court appointed Richard Kammen and Uliana as public defenders. Lockhart was in court Wednesday for the ruling.
