Suits in triple-slaying proceeds case move ahead

David Camm

Civil suits seeking to prevent a one-time Indiana state trooper from claiming $626,000 in insurance and estate proceeds stemming from his family's killings are moving ahead.

The News and Tribune and The Courier-Journal report that attorneys for the parents of David Camm's late wife filed the suits. They argue he shouldn't get all of the insurance and estate proceeds despite being acquitted in the killings of his wife and two children.

Camm lawyer David Mosley says the money should go to Camm and not toward legal fees for the attorney who's represented Frank and Janice Renn since the killings of their daughter and grandchildren.

Juries convicted Camm twice on murder charges in the September 2000 killings. Both convictions were overturned and Camm was acquitted in the murders last fall.
