GIST: David Camm, a former Indiana State trooper, was found not guilty on three counts Thursday in the slayings of his wife and two children. The case marked the third murder trial for Camm, who has twice previously been convicted in the killings. WATCH: "48 Hours -- Murder on Lockhart Road."  Both of the previous convictions were overturned on appeal and a new trial was ordered for Camm, accused in the shooting death his wife Kimberly and their children Bradley, 7, and Jill, 5, in the garage of their Georgetown, Ind. home in September of 2000. Camm had been a state trooper for more than a decade and left the force about four months before the murders. There was applause and weeping in the courtroom as the verdict was read. Camm rocked back and forth, holding his head in hands and crying. After the verdict, according to Camm's sister Julie Blakenbaker, Camm leaned against the wall and said it was "good," but that he still didn't have "them," referring to his family. Kitty Liell, Camm's attorney at his second trial, said that "prayers have been answered." Camm has always  maintained his innocence, saying he was playing basketball with 10 other people.........Camm's defense argued another man - Charles Boney - was the killer, and acted alone. Boney has already been convicted of murder in the case, reports CBS affiliate WISH-TV.
