Mary Winkler Appears In Court

SELMER, Tenn. (AP) -- A trial date could be set Thursday in Selmer for a woman accused of slaying her husband, a Church of Christ minister. 

There's a motions hearing in the case of Mary Winkler, charged with murder in the shooting death last March of Mathew Winkler in the church parsonage.

One of the defense motions seeks to dismiss certain evidence found in the parsonage. Another motion seeks to throw out some of the woman's statements to police.

It's not clear whether Mary Winkler will be in court Thursday. She's been living with friends in McMinnville under court approval. 

Matthew Winkler was killed by a shotgun blast to the back. 

Authorities refuse to discuss a motive but say the couple had money troubles, partly because of falling victim to a financial scam.

Mary Winkler was arrested the day after the slaying in south Alabama, where she went with the couple's three young daughters. 

Authorities said the couple argued over finances and other family matters.
