Man is Charged with Murder in SeMo Trooper's Death

MARCH 29, 2005 - Posted at 3:42 p.m. CST

 

VAN BUREN, MO - A southeast Missouri man is charged in the killing of a state trooper.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says today that 28-year-old Lance Shockley of Van Buren is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.  He is held without bond in the Cape Girardeau County Jail.

Sergeant Carl Dewayne Graham, Jr. was fatally shot March 20 outside his home near Van Buren, still wearing his uniform.

Shockley was arrested March 23 for leaving the scene of a fatal November crash that Graham investigated in Carter County.  Investigators sought a possible link between the investigation and Graham's death.

Graham was zone supervisor for Carter and Reynolds counties.  He was the divorced father of a 4-year-old son, and was engaged to be married.  He was memorialized at funeral services in his hometown of Dexter last week, and buried in Dunklin County.
