NEW ALBANY, Ind. - 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 (http://bit.ly/K6nzUk ) 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.
