Wife who killed pastor husband may serve 60 days – CNN.com

 A preachers wife in Tennessee Mary Winkler who shot her husband as he lay in bed gets a little more time behind bars than Paris Hilton, she was ultimately convicted on involuntary manslaughter and could have faced up to six years in prison. Mrs. Winkler portrayed her husband as abusive with varying degrees of abuse, after the killing she fled but was apprehended later. I do not know the specifics of the case so I can not comment to much on this one but apparently extenuating circumstances were presented at the trial, but it leaves one to wonder when is it o.k to kill? And in many cases we hear of today we see more leniency in prosecuting these people who commit violent acts, it shows us in a way how society has become more tolerant to violence and how the system has gotten caught up in all the mayhem.
