ROCKPORT, Ind. -- New DNA evidence is causing a one-week delay in a southern Indiana man's third trial on charges that he killed his wife and two young children nearly 13 years ago.

The Spence County judge overseeing the case against 49-year-old David Camm held a hearing Tuesday during which he scheduled jury selection to start Aug. 12. Camm's trial will be held in central Indiana's Boone County because of publicity about the shootings at the family's home in Georgetown, near Louisville, Ky.

The judge ruled in May that DNA tests could be done on the shirt Camm wore the day of the shootings.

Defense attorney Stacy Uliana tells The Courier-Journal those results are needed before jury selection starts.

Juries convicting Camm of murder in 2002 and 2006. Both verdicts were overturned.
