State of Tennessee vs. Mary Winkler

Mary Winkler, a preacher's wife, was charged with first degree murder of her husband. The case garnered national attention from every possible media outlet including CNN, LARRY KING, NANCY GRACE, OPRAH WINFREY, & PEOPLE MAGAZINE. The Winkler trial, covered by COURT TV, was considered the most highly publicized murder trial in the South. After a lengthy trial, the jury returned a verdict of manslaughter, a lesser crime which carried a maximum of six years incarceration vs. the possible life imprisonment sentence under first degree murder. Winkler was later sentenced to three years with 67 days to serve.
