NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — A court hearing has been set on the dispute between a southern Indiana county and defense attorneys for a former state trooper over bills for the trial in which he was acquitted of charges he killed his wife and two young children.

Attorneys for Floyd County and David Camm are to appear Wednesday before the special judge who oversaw Camm’s eight-week trial last fall.

The News and Tribune reports Camm’s attorneys say the county hasn’t paid some bills they submitted and taken more than a year to pay others.

The county auditor says the unpaid bills total about $420,000.

Officials say the county has faced more than $3 million in costs from Camm’s three trials for the September 2000 shootings. Camm was convicted twice but those verdicts were overturned.
