ROCKPORT, Ind. (AP) — A judge has ordered a southern Indiana county auditor to immediately pay about $140,000 in unresolved legal bills for the defense of a former state trooper acquitted of charges he killed his wife and two young children.

Special Judge Jon Dartt on Wednesday ordered Floyd County Auditor Scott to pay the amount to settle most of disputed claims presented by attorneys who represented David Camm during his third murder trial last fall.

The News and Tribune and The (Louisville, Ky.) Courier-Journal report Dartt said Clark and county officials should have communicated better with attorneys Stacey Uliana and Richard Kammen so Wednesday’s hearing could have been avoided.

A central Indiana jury acquitted Camm in October in the 2000 murder deaths of his wife, Kim, and their two children, Brad and Jill.
