MD - Lisa Moore, 40, shot to death, Chesapeake Beach, 31 Dec 2005
A Chesapeake Beach man forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's home on New Year's Eve, in violation of a court-issued protective order, and killed her with a blast from a shotgun, Calvert County authorities said yesterday.
The Calvert County Sheriff's Office and the Maryland State Police were searching for Graham D. Buckmaster, 57, who is wanted on charges of first- and second-degree murder in the death of Lisa M. Moore, 40.
Police said a county court commissioner had issued a criminal summons for Buckmaster on Tuesday for violating the protective order, which has been in effect since Dec. 5. Moore's ex-husband said yesterday that officers "looked the other way" rather than serve the summons on Buckmaster, whose family is prominent in Calvert County.
"He's not that hard to find," said Michael Moore, who lives in Laurel.
But Detective Sgt. Michael Moore, who is not related to the victim, said officers had been looking for Buckmaster in recent days. "We did everything in our power to find him," he said, adding that Buckmaster would not have been arrested even if he had been given the summons.
Court records show that authorities had charged Buckmaster with assault or battery on at least nine occasions since 1987, including six incidents involving Moore. A half-dozen times since 2000, the courts had ordered Buckmaster not to contact her.
Records also show a 1998 order prohibiting Moore from contacting Buckmaster.

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?

Another restraining order violation.......I wonder if he was ever prosecuted on any of the assault/battery charges. Doesn't sound like it. Sounds like he's been left to do what he did.
Prayers to Lisa's family.You put the light in me...

Park ranger arrests Maryland fugitive
A nationwide manhunt for a Maryland man accused of murder ended Tuesday in Cumberland Gap, Tenn., but not before the suspect made a stop in Harlan County.
According to an article in the Washington Post, Calvert County authorities said Graham D. Buckmaster, 57, of Chesapeake Beach, forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's home on New Year's Eve, in violation of a court-issued protective order, and killed her with a blast from a shotgun.

From May 2007:
In his five days presiding over the murder trial of Graham D. Buckmaster this year, Calvert County Circuit Court Judge Warren J. Krug was the picture of civility. He repeatedly thanked the prosecutor and defense attorneys for their fine work. He addressed witnesses and the jurors, who returned a guilty verdict, with all the manners of a Sunday school teacher...
Moments later, inside a second-floor courtroom with the bright skies alight on the other side of eight windows, Krug hammered Buckmaster with a sentence of life without parole for first-degree murder, plus 10 years for burglary and 90 days each for three counts of violating a protective order. It was the most prison time he could have handed down, according to the prosecutor's office.
