THE WINKLER TRIAL goes to the jury today. One of the best sources of coverage I've found has been The Jackson Sun, well worth keeping an eye on. You can read about Mary Winkler's testimony--some of which struck me as believable, some...less so--and an overall round-up of the case here.

My own personal view from what I've seen and read is that I would have a hard time convicting her of first-degree, premeditated murder, but would vote to convict of a lesser murder charge. Of course, the jury has heard more testimony and seen more evidence than I have; it is their decision that counts here. We need to pray for everyone involved in this, particularly the Winkler children who are already the big losers here.
