Judge to hear motion's hearing in Mary Winkler's custody case

HUNTINGDON, Tenn. (AP) -- A judge is scheduled to hear motions in convicted killer Mary Winkler's custody case this morning.

Winkler was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in April in the shooting death of her husband, Church of Christ minister Matthew Winkler, at their residence in Selmer in March 2006.

She was sentenced to three years in prison but is free on probation. Winkler is fighting for custody of the couple's three young daughters from his parents, Dan and Diane Winkler of Huntingdon.

Carroll County Chancellor Ron Harmon is scheduled to hear motions at 10 a.m.
