LEBANON, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Testimony continued on Tuesday for the prosecution in David Camm's third murder trial.
 
Kim's mother, Janice Renn, took the stand testifying that she had never seen Charles Boney in the family meat market in New Albany. It contradicted theories presented by the defense in opening arguments that Boney saw Kim there and perhaps started following her.
 
Renn also said it was very difficult to find the Camm house in Georgetown, Indiana. She said her husband Frank would typically pass it up even though they had been there numerous times. It supports the prosecution's argument that this was not a random crime by Boney.
 
Renn also testified that when she ran into David Camm at the funeral home after the murders he allegedly said, "When this is all over I'm leaving town."
 
Former Indiana State Trooper Shelly Romero, a friend of David Camm, also testified about a phone conversation she had with him just two days after the murders. She said he asked her, "Who is going to want a guy like me after his wife and kids have been killed?"
 
Romero told the defense she questioned the quality of the investigation and felt it moved too quickly, but she also said on the night of the murders that David Camm told her he didn't think it was a burglary because his paycheck and medications were still in the house. The testimony worked against Camm and the defense who have theorized that burglary was a possible motive for Boney.
 
Blood spatter experts are expected to be called this week for the prosecution. Prosecutor Stan Levco said he does not expect to call Charles Boney this week.
