LEBANON, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The second interview of David Camm with State Police officers was the focus of testimony on Thursday. It occurred three days after the murders and shortly before Camm would be arrested on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2000.

Robert "Mickey" Neal, a State Police Trooper, was one of the men who questioned Camm. He told Camm there was trouble with his story because an outside expert found high velocity blood spatter on his T-shirt. The defense argued the expert, Robert Stites, was not qualified to make the determination that ultimately led to Camm's arrest. Defense attorney Stacy Uliana argued that Stites had never been to a homicide scene and didn't have any background in blood spatter stain analysis. Neal told jurors he later learned that, but still felt Camm was guilty. Neal said he thought it was odd that Camm told him that he never touched his wife, Kim, after finding her dead body. Camm said during the interview that he went into "police mode," but Neal told jurors that checking for vitals is one of the first things they're trained to do.

Testimony concluded on Thursday with a different blood spatter expert on the stand. Dean Marks is with the Indiana State police. His testimony is expected to continue on Friday.
