(WHAS11) - David Camm was back in court Wednesday.

The former Indiana State Trooper will go on trial for a third time, charged with killing his family 10 years ago.
His attorneys are asking for the prosecutor to be tossed out.
Wednesday’s hearing aimed at trying to remove Floyd County Prosecutor, Keith Henderson, from the David Camm murder case, all over a book deal.
David Camm was brought to Spencer County in handcuffs, under constant watch.

The focus is on Henderson and a book deal in the works about the Camm case.
Camm's family came to support him and his mother broke down when seeing him face a judge again.
His lawyers had a legal ethics expert testify about the book contract. The law professor from Indiana University in Indianapolis says that signing a book deal is a conflict of interest and could jeopardize and sensationalize this case with unnecessary publicity.
The expert has testified in court 30 different times on other cases.
Camm was convicted twice of killing his wife and two kids in 2000. Both convictions were tossed out in appeals.
