Pre-Assessment:         Mrs. Mary Winkler Murder Case.

In March 2006, Mrs. Mary C. Winkler, the wife of a Pastor in Tennessee town, shot and killed her husband, Rev. Matthew Winkler, in the back with a 12-guage shotgun while he slept. Throughout the ensuing trial, the suspect Mrs. Winkler, along with family and friends, claimed that her husband had mistreated her, and mistreatment had inspired the shooting. After the shooting, Mrs. Winkler was arrested in Orange Beach, Alabama, where she had fled with her three young daughters, and extradited to Tennessee. On April 20, 2007, Mrs. Winkler was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and a grand jury indicted her on charges of first-degree murder.

When Mrs. Winkler took the stand in her own defense two days before her conviction, she told the grand jury of her alleged abuse at the hands of her late husband, with whom she had frequent arguments. She asserted that the shooting was an accident and that she had actually been trying to reconcile with her husband at the time of the murder and further claimed that although the gun had discharged, she could not remember having pulled the trigger.

She alleged that her flight to Alabama affirmed her determined attempts to get away from her angry husband. Winkler was ultimately convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced on June 8, 2007, to 210 days in prison, 5 months of which she had already served. She spent some time in a Tennessee mental health facility and then served the remainder of her sentence on probation. Eventually, she was awarded custody of her children.  At times, law recognizes, under circumstances most individual can be justification for the taking of human life (Montaldo, 2017).
