Man indicted in murder of 40-year-old Amber Buckner who was stabbed 30 times



A Massachusetts man has been recently indicted concerning the murder of a 40-year-old woman that he knew.

In December, Stoughton Chief of Police Donna McNamara and Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey announced that 39-year-old Victor Carter with recent addresses in Stoughton and Brockton, was taken into custody on a Stoughton District Court warrant for the murder of Amber Buckner in Stoughton.

A plea of not guilty was entered on Carters behalf last month and was ordered held without bail. His probable cause hearing took place on Wednesday.

Buckner was pronounced deceased on-scene at 743 Park Street, Stoughton, where she was discovered in an outbuilding behind the main house on December 13, 2022.

According to Boston 25, prosecutors stated that Buckner was found with approximately 30 stab wounds. She also had defensive wounds on her hands. A four-inch tactical knife was found protruding from her temple.

Carter was taken into custody in the middle of December at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department working with members of VFAS.

Carter had a relationship history with Buckner, according to the DA.

District Attorney Morrissey and Chief McNamara encourage the public to use the state-wide domestic violence services hotline: 877-785-2020 if needed.

“If you do not feel safe in your relationship, or you know someone who is not safe in their relationship, calling SafeLink at 877-785-2020 is a confidential first step on the path to safety,” District Attorney Morrissey said.
