(WHAS11)-- Charles Boney arrived at the Boone County, Ind. courthouse early Monday morning surrounded by police.

On his way into the courthouse, Boney did not directly respond to questions, but said “I am blessed” and “have a good morning.”

He was convicted of the 2000 killings of Kimberly, Bradley and Jill Camm.

Today he testified in David Camm’s third murder trial since those murders.

Charles Boney was escorted into the courtroom by three officers, followed by Camm.  WHAS reporter Maggie Ruper said an “intense” stare-down occurred between the two.

When asked if David Camm was present in the courtroom, Boney said he was, described his attire and said he was “looking very dapper.”

While on the stand, Boney gave details of how he met Camm, how Camm acquired two guns from him and the events that took place on the night of the killings.

Boney testified Camm was in the garage with his wife, Kim, when he heard a woman’s voice scream “No” and then heard a loud pop.  He also said he heard a child’s voice say “daddy,” before hearing two more pops.

During the testimony, Boney talked about chasing Camm through the house and at one point thinking Camm was going to shoot him.  He also gave statements that contradict evidence showing his DNA on the underwear of Kim Camm.

More from the testimony and Ruper’s complete coverage of today’s events from the courthouse in Lebanon, Ind. will be aired during today’s evening newscast.
