Five years ago tomorrow, a man walked into the First Baptist Church of Maryville and fatally shot pastor Fred Winters, mid-sermon.
The case of a man accused of gunning down a Maryville, Illinois pastor mid-sermon more than four years ago inched closer to a resolution Wednesday.
Appeals court rules Terry Sedlacek remains mentally unfit to stand trial for 2009 killing of Maryville, Ill. pastor Fred Winters. Stage is set for a discharge hearing.
Terry Sedlacek is accused of gunning down a Illinois pastor.
Madison County Circuit Judge Richard Tognarelli says there’s no substantial probability that Terry Sedlacek will become mentally competent within a year.
Terry Sedlacek drove his Jeep to the church, bringing with him a .45-caliber handgun and enough bullets to kill 30 people.
At issue in the delay is whether the state can be forced to video tape its psychiatric evaluation of the suspect.
