FLOYD CO., Ky. (WHAS11) -- The criminal case for David Camm is over but the civil case is far from finished.

“That money is spent. It's long gone. My family, we have outstanding debt now it's well in excess, we've spent well in excess of what’s in the estate. I just want to be able to pay people back. That’s all,” Camm said.

Camm is talking about the money in his late family’s estate. Roughly $600,000 is at the center of this court fight.

Even with this court challenge Camm says he feels grateful.

“At this point I just feel blessed and at this point I would like to get this all behind us,” Camm said.

The former Indiana State Trooper was accused of murdering his wife Kim and their children Bradley and Jill in 2000.

He was convicted twice for the murders and both convictions were overturned.

His third trial ended with an acquittal and a new life outside of prison for Camm.

“Comparatively speaking to where I've been for the last 14 years, you know, I feel very fortunate just taking it day to day trying to make the best of each and every day and try and enjoy life. Whatever I have left of that,” Camm said.

Kim Camm's father was in court on Tuesday, Aug. 12.

He didn't speak out but his family is trying to keep David Camm from getting the money in the estate.
Camm's attorney has this message about the case.

“I think Mr. Stein, and all due respect, the Renn’s need to wake up and smell the coffee. He was acquitted he did not harm Kim, Brad and Jill. So we are wasting time and it’s unfair and unfortunate,” Camm’s civil attorney David Mosley said.

Camm has another civil case he is looking towards. He has a lawsuit he plans to file against the state of

Indiana for what he says is a wrongful conviction.

“I believe I have until Oct. 25 to actually file the suit and it's forthcoming,” Camm said.
