    It amazes me that she gets her kids back after admitting to killing their father but Brad Cooper looses his children and he hasn't even been arrested. This just shows that our justice system is broken and needs to be fixed.

    I'm not going to comment on Cooper getting his children back, but even if everythi8ng Mary Winkler said in defense was true, she doesn't deserve to have them back.

    It's a poor problem solving solution to shoot someone and especially the way she did.

    She'll make sure those grandparents don't see the children, either. Double loss.

    I'll bet the grandparents are really upset and he youngest child is probably especially attached to them. This is awful. I believed most of the allegations about Matthew, but the kids would be better off with the grandparents, imo.

    They call this justice? Why not send Neil Entwistle back to England while their at it! I am afraid for the children.I believe Mary has a mental problem~ if a man doesnt treat you right, LEAVE HIM!! DONT KILL HIM~ Thou shalt not kill!!!

    Mary Winkler takes children home to McMinnville
    Friday, August 1, 2008

    Mary Winkler, convicted of killing her husband, picked up her three daughters today from their grandparents and took them to her home in McMinnville, Tenn.

    Although no court order has been entered for a change in custody, a source said Winkler and her in-laws have reached an agreement that the children will live with their mother. She has had supervised visits since September 2007.

    absolutely unthinkable that she is out. And NOW she has the kids too?

    I wonder what changed the minds of her inlaws. They wanted to supervised visits, now they let the kids go with her?

    Probably just giving in to the inevitable. The children may also have wanted to go back to their mother...children are unbelievably loyal and perhaps Mary came off as a much better parent to them--if the accounts of the family going out to eat and the children getting nothing or very little while Matthew ordered the super size platter--They may remember their father as a harsh disciplinarian.

    Again, none of which should excuse what Mary did, just an explanation for why the grandparents perhaps decided to negotiate seeing the children over fighting for custody and losing entirely.

    I am delighted that Mary and the girls are reunited. This has been a hard fought victory. Many thanks to all those who worked to get this day to come!

    It would appear that the grandparents are in agreement, therefore it's not for any of us to day differently I would suspect.
