Well, for me, that currently is this story.
As per CNN:
From Susan Candiotti and Rusty Dornin
(CNN) -- After spending a total of seven months in custody, the Tennessee woman who fatally shot her preacher was released on Tuesday, her lawyer told CNN.
Holding baby Breanna, Mary Winkler stands next to Matthew. In the foreground are Mary Alice and Patricia.
1 of 2 Mary Winkler, a 33-year-old mother of three girls, was freed from a Tennessee mental health facility where she was treated for depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, lawyer Steve Farese said.
"She is out," Farese said.
Farese said his client will not talk to the news media because she continues to wage a legal battle to win custody of her girls and faces a $2 million civil suit filed by the parents of her slain husband, Matthew Winkler.
Except for her oldest daughter's brief testimony at her trial, Winkler hasn't seen her children in a year, the lawyer said.
Winkler will return to work at the dry cleaners in McMinnville, Tennessee, where she worked before the trial, Farese said. She is living with friends.
Winkler served about five months in county jail as she awaited trial, then spent two months undergoing therapy at the mental health facility following her conviction for voluntary manslaughter.
Winkler never denied shooting her husband, Matthew, the popular new preacher at the Fourth Street Church of Christ in Selmer, a town of 4,500 people about 80 miles east of Memphis.
Now, you know my antennae went up with the ' shooting the husband in the back'. As a Black person, we have heard of too many cases where the police have short unarmed Black men, in the back, as they were ' resisting arrest'. Sounds hokey and full of BS when the cops say it, and it sounds suspect with this woman here.
I had looked forward to this trial, because I just KNEW that this was going to be one of those tabloid, CourtTV, Nancy Grace specials. We would know EVERYTHING and ANYTHING about this woman and her husband when it was all said and done.
But then, I blinked, and the trial was OVER. I was like, HUH? How can this trial be OVER. It took like a nanosecond, and nothing really was brought out about this case.
I mean, manslaughter? You should someone in the back, admit that you did it, and it's MANSLAUGHTER?
Seven months for shooting a man in the back?
Claiming abuse, yet not one report on record of abuse in the 10 years you were supposedly abused? I'm not saying that it didn't happen...I'm just saying that I don't know of a case where a Black woman was given this much 'benefit of the doubt'. That, on her word, and no consistent evidence of abuse, would get out of jail after seven months.
If you know of such a case involving a Black woman with this little PROOF of abuse, please leave it in the comments section.
As I see it now, it's just another case of White privilege in the 'Justice' System.
Think about this: Genarlow Wilson's still in jail and has served longer for consensual sex; Shaquanda Cotton served more time for shoving a hall monitor.
This woman served SEVEN MONTHS TOTAL for killing her husband by shooting him in the back.
