Winkler hearing continued to May

By From page A3 | April 18, 2012

Todd Winkler had a short court appearance Monday morning.

Winkler, who is accused of killing his wife, Rachel, in their Cameron Airpark home on Feb. 27, was escorted into the courtroom to sit among other inmates for about five minutes, just long enough for his hearing to be continued.

After briefly conferring at the bench with counsel from both sides, El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas C. Phimister informed Winkler that he had the right to an earlier hearing, but this would have to be waived if they were to keep the new date. It would benefit Winkler, Phimister said, as it would allow more time for his attorney, David Weiner, to build a case.

When asked whether he waived that right, Winkler said he would.

Winkler’s next court date is May 21 at 8 a.m.
