Custody battle apparently an issue in shooting which ends in four dead in Maine

Apparently the man who shot his wife and children was out on bail after holding his family hostage last June. Where's the speedy trial?

Steven Lake and his wife, Amy, a schoolteacher, had been sharing custody of their two children... until recently. Amy had a restraining order on her husband; police had been checking on her daily. Quoting from the story:
Investigators can't say for sure what pushed Steven Lake over the edge, Wright said, but a relative told The Associated Press that Lake was frustrated by an ongoing custody dispute and particularly upset at having to miss his son's eighth-grade graduation.
