Protective order extended against man shot by police

August 04, 1994

A Carroll district judge yesterday ordered a New Windsor man who was shot by a state trooper Sunday to stay away from his wife until at least February.

In a 200-day extension of a protective order granted Thursday, Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones ordered John Meredith Carter, 45, to stay away from Mary Jane Carter and her 13-year-old daughter.

Mrs. Carter, 45, was found by state police Sunday chained to a pipe in the couple's New Windsor apartment. Tfc. Shawn Miller said he shot Mr. Carter after he pointed a rifle at him and another trooper.

Mr. Carter, who was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center early Monday, was listed in stable condition last night at the prison ward of University Hospital in Baltimore, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Mr. Carter faces charges of assault with intent to murder, attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment and false imprisonment.

He was under a previous order by Judge Jones to stay away from his wife when the incident occurred.
