LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- State Trooper David Camm will face a judge and jury in Boone County for his third murder trial.

Camm is accused of murdering his wife and two children back in 2000. He was convicted twice of the murders, but both convictions have been overturned. Camm's uncle, Sam Lockhart, says his family is happy a venue has been finalized.

"We're hopeful that in Lebanon we can find a jury that will provide us with an unbiased look in this case," Lockhart said.

Boone County is nearly 150 miles away from where Kim Camm and her two children were killed.

Special Prosecutor on this case, Stan Levco, said Boone County is a great choice for this high profile murder case.

"I'm pleased that we're going there. That’s where I wanted to go," said Levco.

Levco said he and the defense agreed on Boone County a few months ago, but the decision was in the hands of a judge.

WHAS11 tried to contact Kim Camm's family, but was unsuccessful.

According to defense Attorney Richard Kammen's office, he is out of the country.

Jury selection is expected to start on August 5, 2013.
