Floyd County challenges David Camm's bills

Updated:
NEW ALBANY -

Officials in a southern Indiana county are challenging more than $95,000 in legal bills submitted by an attorney for a man acquitted in the slayings of his wife and two children after spending 13 years in prison.

A portion of the claims submitted by David Camm's lead defense lawyer, Richard Kammen, lack documentation.

But other bills questioned by Floyd County Auditor Scott Clark include hourly fees for additional paralegals and a third lawyer hired to work for Camm's defense team.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports Floyd leaders believe those costs weren't envisioned when Kammen and a co-counsel were appointed to the case.

A jury found Camm not guilty last month in his third murder trial in the 2000 shooting deaths of his wife and their two children.
