Judge to order Winkler sentencing for June 8

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A judge in Selmer will set the sentencing of a minister's wife convicted of killing her husband for June 8th.

Sentencing for Mary Winkler was originally set for tomorrow but was delayed because of a scheduling conflict with one of the lawyers involved.

McNairy County Circuit Judge Weber McCraw will file an order tomorrow to reset the sentencing. Winkler was convicted of manslaughter April 19th for shooting her husband, Matthew, at their Church of Christ parsonage last year.

She faces three to six years in prison and would be eligible for parole after serving a third of the sentence. She will receive credit for the five months she already spent in jail.
