A man sentenced to 225 years in the slayings of an ex-Indiana state trooper's wife and two children has told jurors that David Camm tried to frame him for the slayings.

Charles Boney testified Monday that he went to Camm's southern Indiana home to sell Camm a gun in September 2000. Boney says he assumed that when Camm approached his wife's SUV in the garage, Camm was going to get his payment but instead he heard gunshots.

Boney says Camm then pointed the gun at him, but it misfired. Boney says he chased Camm, and Camm told him, "You did this."

The Courier-Journal reports the two glared at each other across the central Indiana courtroom the trial has been moved to due to widespread publicity about the case.
