TODD WINKLER appeared with attorney David Weiner in court on Monday afternoon to set a new hearing date. Democrat photo by Krysten Kellum

The man who allegedly murdered his wife in their Cameron Airpark home appeared in court for a quick hearing Monday afternoon to set a new hearing date.

Attorneys David Weiner, Erik Schlueter and Mark Ralphs all appeared with defendant Todd Winkler in different capacities. Judge Douglas C. Phimister reminded the court that Weiner was the attorney on record and Schlueter could potentially replace Weiner. Ralphs appeared independent of them both.

As the court was still waiting on a decision from the Third District Appellate Court on whether Schlueter would replace Weiner, Phimister scheduled a new hearing for April 8 at 1 p.m. as per deputy district attorney Lisette Suder’s request. A chance to file a brief concerning the Weiner/Schlueter decision was to remain open until the end of the month, with a chance for a reply to follow.

    Not one or two but three attorney's, says a lot for our system, to go from two paid attorney's to a court ordered tax paid one. Well after all it's "Just us" at it's best.

    3 attorneys for someone who stabbed their 3rd wife with scissors and whose wife 2nd wife died in a car crash but he escaped with minor injuries. 1 year later and no progress. My heart really goes out to the family and friends of Rachel. Where is the autopsy?

    Rachael Winkler was my neighbor, a good one. When will justice even start to happen here? This ridiculous and a sham. Get on with it!! The truth needs to be told.

    Looks like this is going to California Supreme Court. I am curious to know what Todd is trying to block. Is he trying to seal all the info on the accident in Georgia where his second wife dieee when tjeir truck went down a cliff but somehow he was only slightly injured. Also iteresting the crash started a brush fire. Anyone who knew Todd back in college days would hardly recognize him now. My heart goes out to Rachel's friends and family. It is heartbreaking to lose a friend. But to somethink like this is maddening. You want privacy respected for the family but those wanting justice want the truh out there. Todd seemed to have a certain type that he went after. All kind and wonderful girls but jad no idea of what he really is. I wonder how many other girls there were over the years in all the places he was stationed that have no idea where he is now.

    Unfortunately I think murder trials do often take this long to get under way. A criminal prosecutor told me that something like this could take 4 years to go to trial. I have a feeling Mr. Todd is not getting away with this one.
