Winkler's lawyers back for fifth try at release

SELMER, Tenn. (AP) - Defense attorneys have arrived in Selmer for a fifth day in an attempt to free from jail the widow of a slain West Tennessee pastor.

Mary Winkler has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge in the March shotgun slaying of her minister husband, Matthew Winkler, in the parsonage where they lived.

Mrs. Winkler was found on the Gulf Coast the next day with the couple's three young daughters.

Her lawyers, Steve Farese and Leslie Ballin, arrived at the McNairy County Courthouse in Selmer this morning.

The court set bond for Mary Winkler at $750,000.
