Mary Winker Denied Custody of Three Daughters

The Tennessee woman who killed her minister husband is denied custody of her three children.

But it's not hopeless for Mary Winkler, she was granted "supervised visitation" with her daughters and she can talk to them on the phone every other day.

The children have been with their paternal grandparents since Winkler killed their father, Matthew, in March of 2006.

"I fear for Patricia and I fear for my friend. But the court just has to know that these girls are quoted not wanting to see me and not loving me--but when they've had opportunity, they've contacted me and told me how much they love me," Winkler said.

Matthew's parents are seeking to adopt the girls, who are now ten, eight and two.

Mary Winkler is currently on probation after serving around seven months in jail.

She remains on probation for the next three years.
