Day Two of Winkler Trial

Jury selection enters day two in the trial of a Tennessee woman accused of murdering her minister husband.

Mary Winkler is accused of shooting and killing her husband, Pastor Matthew Winkler.

Police say Mary has admitted killing her husband last year, saying she was fed up with his constant criticism.

Her attorneys told potential jurors, the defense would focus on how and why the crime happened.

Potential jurors were asked if they had been or knew anyone who’d been in an abusive relationship. They were also asked about their religious affiliations and familiarity with firearms.

Jury selection was expected to take up to a week and the trial could last several weeks.
