Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

From August 2006:
The Jeffersonville man who admitted murdering his pregnant wife and 11-month-old son is headed to prison for the rest of his life. On Thursday, a judge sentenced 28-year-old Zachariah Melcher to life in prison without the possibility of parole...
Melcher admitted strangling Christian, who was eight months pregnant, and suffocating their 11-year-old son, Jaiden, by placing a plastic bag over his head.
