LEBANON, Ind. -- Camm's former co-worker and friend, Josh Banet, took the stand on Wednesday. Banet was a state trooper at the time of the Camm murders. He responded to their Georgetown home that night and testified that he and Camm embraced. He said he looked up to Camm when first becoming a trooper.

After having a family of his own and reflecting on the night of the murders, Banet said he now thinks Camm's behavior was unusual that night, something previous jurors have not heard. Banet said Camm was yelling, "Why my kids?" at the scene and he now thinks it was unusual he never said, "Why my family?" or "Why my wife?"

He also said he got in his patrol car later that night and said to another officer, "He did it, didn't he?"

DNA evidence was also presented in court by an expert witness for the prosecution, Lynn Scamahorn, who found Kim and Brad's DNA on Charles Boney's sweatshirt. Jill's blood was found on Camm's T-shirt and Kim's blood was found on his sock and shoelaces. His DNA was also found on Kim Camm's underwear, something the expert said was not unexpected.

Scamahorn admitted during cross examination that the items presented in court were last tested in 2005 and technology has advanced since then. The statement sets up the defense to present their newly tested DNA by a lab in the Netherlands that shows Charles Boney's DNA was found on Kim's underwear. That will be presented later in the trial. The State will likely contest it's reliability.
