    ~snip~
    A Morrisville teenager is being held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges he raided a tomb in a cemetery and removed the head of the corpse.

    Nickolas Buckalew, 17, faces up to 25 years in prison for the alleged April 8 theft. He was charged Monday with disinterring and disturbing the remains of a person, damaging a crypt and damaging grave markers.

    Lamoille County State's Attorney Joel Page said Buckalew's lengthy "rap sheet" led him to seek the high bail. The 17-year-old has seven convictions on his record and was on furlough from custody at the time of the alleged theft. Page also said Buckalew tried to commit suicide while he was in police custody.

    Buckalew will undergo a psychiatric evaluation and will likely have a competency hearing before the case proceeds. While Page said he recognizes the strange nature of the crime, he's not willing to concede that Buckalew is mentally ill.

    July 2006:

    His case finally went to court June 28, and he was sentenced to serve one to seven years for unauthorized removal of a dead body...

    Buckalew had been on probation for a burglary conviction; the crypt theft violated the terms of probation, and he was sent to jail.

    He’ll start serving the crypt-robbing sentence after he completes the jail term for burglary. He will have to report regularly to the Department of Corrections until about 2015.

    A corrections officer testified at the sentencing hearing that Buckalew is likely to be placed on conditional re-entry, similar to parole, at Spring Lake Ranch in Cuttingsville, near Rutland...

    A psychologist who has been working with Buckalew testified that Spring Lake Ranch offers the best treatment option in Vermont for Buckalew, who has been diagnosed with a number of psychiatric problems....

    The corrections officer said that, if Buckalew does not follow along with the program, he’ll go to prison....

    In a statement to the court, Buckalew called his behavior appalling and inexcusable and asked for help with what he called his “mental problems.”

    police say they say they found 22-year-old Nicholas Buckalew of Morrisville. Police say he went into three businesses, causing damage in each, and tried to steal $1,800 worth of items. Buckalew was on furlough for a 2006 crime and now he's back behind bars until his December court date.

    Back in 2006, a jury found the then-18-year-old Buckalew guilty of grave robbing.

    Nicholas has found fame of a sort - his grave-robbing escapade has made it into S Is for Stupid: An Encyclopedia of Stupidity and Cruel and Unusual Idiots: Chronicles of Meanness and Stupidity.
