Jurors from a central Indiana county will be the ones to decide the third trial of a former state trooper on charges that he killed his wife and two young children 12 years ago.

Court records released Friday show the new trial for David Camm will be held in Boone County, which is just northwest of Indianapolis.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed with the Spencer County judge handling the case to move the trial north of Indianapolis because of extensive news coverage of the slayings in southern Indiana.

Appeals courts overturned jury verdicts from 2002 and 2006 convicting Camm of murder for the shootings in the Floyd County community of Georgetown.

The Courier-Journal reports the new trial is scheduled to start next August and last six to eight weeks.
