Winkler Gets Manslaughter

Yeah, I'm really surprised at this one. I don't tend to follow too many of these public trials (because I have enough of those on my own), but I did manage to keep up with this Tennessee melodrama.

The disjunct story offered up by the defense (that it was an accidental shooting that was supposed to stop the supposedly abusive preacher husband) was completely untenable and straight out of a "Law & Order" episode. How the jury didn't see anything but a murderer in Mary Winkler...

Well, I guess it goes to show that you never know how a case is going to come out when it goes to a jury of twelve.
