LEBANON, Ind. -- Rebuttal began Tuesday, Oct. 15, in David Camm's third murder trial.
David Camm is accused of killing his wife and two children on Sept. 28, 2000.
The prosecution called its first rebuttal witness, Norah Rudin. Rudin, a private DNA consultant, testified that Richard Eikelenboom's test results were not reliable.
"Given the way this data was produced it is unreliable," Rudin said.
She criticized his methods of testing like: quantification, validation studies and controls.
Rudin only reviewed Eikelenboom's touch DNA test results. She never did any testing herself. Rudin said she currently only reviews data of other labs and usually testifies for the defense. She says the Camm case is an exception though because she is testifying for the prosecution.
Under Kammen's questioning Rudin said she didn't know many details about the Camm case and had only seen a couple of pictures of the crime scene.
The jury asked Rudin how she approached reviewing Eikelenboom's tests and if she had any biased before hand. Rudin said she entered the case unbiased and analyzed the DNA blindly.
"I used a specific procedure to avoid bias," Rudin said.
Other rebuttal witnesses
She was a Floyd County court reporter in 2002 and was responsible for handling exhibits of evidence in the 1st Camm trial. Gordon said she followed court procedure at the time and had gloves on when she handled the exhibits. Gordon said she did not change gloves between handling exhibits. She also had to take pictures of the exhibits and she said it was possible she put exhibits in the same spot on carpeted flooring in a Floyd County courtroom.
He is an AT&T employee and works in Indianapolis. Gerrian testified about Kim and David Camm's cellphone records in 2000. He said there was an incoming phone call at 7:50 p.m. on Sept. 28 to Kim Camm's cellphone and that it had gone to voicemail.
Tom Bevel, a forensic expert, is expected to be called again by the prosecution on Wednesday.
