LEBANON, Ind. (AP) -- The uncle of a former Indiana state trooper charged with fatally shooting his wife and two children told a jury his nephew wailed in grief and fell onto the driveway outside the murder scene as police and relatives converged on his home.
Sam Lockhart also testified Tuesday that police spoke to him only briefly on the telephone about the night of the killings before arresting his nephew, David Camm. Lockhart says Camm was playing basketball with him and others at a church around the time of the killings in September 2000.
Lockhart's testimony came Tuesday as Camm's attorneys opened their defense in his third murder trial. Prosecutors rested their case Thursday following four weeks of testimony.
The shootings happened about four months after Camm resigned from state police.
