Officials in a southern Indiana county are continuing to complain about the big bills from defense attorneys for a former state trooper acquitted in October of charges he killed his wife and two young children.

The Floyd County auditor says the county still owes $659,000 in bills related to the David Camm case, with most of that for defense expenses.

The News and Tribune reports the county council has approved a resolution to hire a special counsel to represent the county at an upcoming court hearing to discuss the bills.

Officials say the county has suffered from more than $3 million in costs for Camm's three trials for the September 2000 shootings. Camm was convicted twice but those were overturned on appeal.
