I don't know about this...

Slain Tenn. Pastor's Wife Freed on Bail
SELMER, Tenn. — A minister's wife accused of shooting her husband to death after an argument over money was released from jail Tuesday on $750,000 bail.
Mary Winkler, 32, is charged with killing Matthew Winkler on March 22 at their church parsonage in Selmer, about 80 miles east of Memphis.
She was arrested the following day in Alabama, where she had taken the couple's three young daughters, and has been behind bars on murder charges since then.
Her trial is scheduled for October.

Okay... I'm not the one to cry sexism. But - would a man who was accused of first-degree murder and had already fled once be allowed bail? Just wondering. Cause this sure doesn't seem right (or legal!) to me.
