Mary Winkler's Former In-Laws Try to Block Appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'

Mary Winkler's former in-laws want to stop her from appearing on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Winkler is scheduled to be on the show Wednesday to talk about fatally shooting her husband, Matthew Winkler, a Church of Christ preacher in the small town of Selmer.

She was convicted of voluntary manslaughter. But she served only five months in jail, followed by two months in a mental health treatment facility.

Dan and Diane Winkler filed a motion in Carroll County Circuit Court seeking to stop Mary Winkler from appearing on the show

They are currently fighting with Mary Winkler over who should have custody of her three young daughters. They say the TV appearance would harm the children.
