Mary Winkler Abuse And Testimony

Mary Winkler Abuse And Testimony - Although there was no evidence presented of sexual, emotional, physical, or verbal abuse other than Mary Winkler’s testimony and the appearance of a platform shoe and wig, the jury was apparently sympathetic with her shooting Matthew Winkler in the back while he was asleep. The surprise verdict of voluntary manslaughter means that Mary Winkler could be sentenced to three to six years in prison, but could serve less with probation.

Comments About the Testimony and the Verdict:
“There was no blackout. There was no self-defense. There was no trying to get him to talk. The man was lying there, sleeping. If he degraded her by making her wear a wig and shoes during sex, she could have gotten a divorce.”

“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.”

“She even said that at certain points he sexually humiliated her. And in fact, there was a point where she brought out a wig and a pair of high-heeled shoes that she says he made her put on. She clearly looked uncomfortable. And that he also made her look at pornographic photographs on her computer.”

Mary Winkler “told the jury that Matthew Winkler spent hours looking at pornography on the Internet. He also tried to force her to watch it and dress and act like the pictures she saw on the computer … She said she was also forced to commit “unnatural acts,” referring to anal and oral sex.”

“But Mary Winkler described nearly a decade of marital abuse when she took the witness stand on Wednesday. She said he struck and kicked her, “screamed and hollered” at her, criticized her, blamed her when things went wrong and made her watch pornography and wear “slutty” costumes for sex. She also said he forced her to submit to sex acts that made her uncomfortable … She testified that his sex drive was much stronger than hers, referring to it as “a weakness of his.”
