We filed for bankruptcy back in May 2009 and have not made a payment on our 2nd mortgage since before then. It was not part of the bankruptcy but was Charged Off. Now as of October 2013 they are asking for the total amount and keep calling and sending notice. Is there a Maryland Statute of Limitations on how long they can collect this debt and if so what is it?

It depends. The general statute of limitations is 3 years but documents under seal can have a statute of limitations of up to 12 years.
I hope that this general information helps. You are encouraged to seek legal counsel for any specific questions about your situation.
