Legalized Murder...

She's now going to fight for custody of her kids...
Mary Winkler is a free woman—free of her abusive marriage and free of jail. After 67 days in a mental-health facility in Tennessee, Winkler was released earlier this week and has returned to her hometown of McMinnville. But is she free of the posttraumatic stress disorder and depression that her legal team said drove her to gun down her preacher-husband, Matthew, last year? After a jury found Winkler guilty of voluntary manslaughter, she was given a three-year sentence, later reduced to 210 days, but she also got credit for the five months she spent in jail awaiting trial—which left only about 60 days, which a judge ruled she could serve in the mental-health facility. Winkler's critics wonder if she ever had PTSD in the first place and say the diagnosis was just a means of getting off easy.
