LEBANON, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The Boone County courthouse is relatively quiet Wednesday as jurors continue to weigh the fate of David Camm.

Its possible deliberations could take a while. The jury in Camm’s first trial took three days to decide a verdict and in the second trial it took a different jury four days. The

The jury is considering three counts of murder – one each for Kim, Brad and Jill, Camm’s wife and children.

Charles Boney was convicted for the crime in 2006, but the prosecution said they believe Camm and Boney acted together. Therefore, Camm could be convicted on murder if the jury finds he aided and abetted Boney with the shootings.

The jury was instructed on what the definition of aiding and abetting is and may return a guilty verdict if they believe Camm assisted Boney in the murders but did not actually pull the trigger.

Camm’s defense was against the instruction given to the jury and said it lowers the burden of proof for the state and perhaps would make it easier to get a conviction.

WHAS11’s Maggie Ruper is in Boone County awaiting word from the court that the jury has reached a decision, she has more in the video player above.
