"Winkler had told jurors that her husband, Matthew, abused her physically and sexually, but she said the shotgun went off accidentally as she pointed it at him.

The prosecution said it was ludicrous to suggest the shooting was an accident.

Matthew Winkler, a 31-year-old preacher at the Fourth Street Church of Christ, was found in the church parsonage fatally shot in his back in March 2006 . . .


Prosecution witnesses described Matthew Winkler as a good husband and father, and the couple's 9-year-old daughter testified she never saw her father mistreat her mother. Mary Winkler also said under cross-examination that her husband did nothing for which he deserved to die."

But:

“Winkler had told jurors that her husband, Matthew, abused her physically and sexually”

And that’s all it really takes these days

why a news?
Either Mr.Billy Graham or Mrs.Graham said "divorce? no! Murder? possible"
there are tense moments in marriage. To wish other half or oneself  die is common. To shot? at that moment, possisble because the anger but one has to have a gun ( gun, most of the time is not good in private hands) . Regreting will immidiately follow the shotting.
Abuse?....is lie. or for not getting into jail.
May God protect that tender child.
I have no tears for the parents. The wife "killed" her child too at the same time.
