The sentencing hearing for Mary Winkler is underway

Mary Winkler has arrived at the courthouse in Selmer where a jury convicted her of a lesser charge in April in the killing her minister husband.

Winkler entered the courtroom in the McNairy County Courthouse with her two lawyers.

Reporters asked her how she was doing, but attorney Steve Farese answered for her, saying Winkler had been instructed not to say anything.

Matthew Winkler's brother is now on the stand speaking for his brother saying that his brother "no longer has a voice."
