Former IN trooper reaches $450K settlement with Floyd County

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — A former Indiana State Police trooper convicted twice but later acquitted in the slayings of his wife and two children will receive a $450,000 settlement from the southern Indiana county that prosecuted him.

The News and Tribune reports the Floyd County commissioners approved the settlement agreement with David Camm on Tuesday night. The agreement was reached Friday.

Camm was acquitted in 2013 in his third murder trial in the 2000 shooting deaths of his 35-year-old wife, Kim Camm, and their children, 7-year-old Brad and 5-year-old Jill. Two earlier convictions were overturned on appeal. Camm spent 13 years in prison while maintaining his innocence.

Camm also filed a lawsuit against the state which is still pending.

A message seeking comment was left for Camm’s attorney.
