Ind. Courts - "David Camm in-laws drop wrongful death suit"

But only to devote efforts to the other pending lawsuits, according to this story this weekend by Baylee Pulliam of the Louisville Courier Journal:

Camm's in-laws, Frank and Janice Renn, are "not giving up" on efforts to keep Camm from profiting from his family's deaths, said Amy Wheatley, an attorney for the couple. Rather, it's "all about streamlining and focusing" on the remaining pending cases to prevent Camm from gaining control of his family's estates or Kim Camm's Nationwide insurance policy, she said.

At issue is how to distribute $167,403 held in certificates of deposit in the three estates, and $458,672 from three life insurance policies, The Courier-Journal previously reported.

[Camm's attorney David Mosley] said that's money Kim Camm wanted her husband to have. He said it would otherwise go to the Renns, who "need to stop scrabbling for money."

Camm, a former Indiana State trooper, was accused of fatally shooting his wife and the couple's children at their home near Georgetown in 2000. After two convictions were overturned, a jury in Boone County acquitted Camm last October and he was freed.

But "acquittal is not the same as innocence," Wheatley said. "We're just as firmly convinced (of Camm's guilt) now as we ever were."
