The Columbian

In this photo taken Dec. 8, 2009, Mae McIntire is photographed in her home in Evansville, Ind. Mary Winnecke lost the daughter who was her best friend. Mae McIntire’s adopted son and daughter, her sister’s children whom she had raised as her own, died the same day. But the two Evansville, Ind., women who’ve lived with their losses for 15 years are starkly divided over whether Matthew Eric Wrinkles should pay the ultimate price for his crimes. Winnecke, a Catholic, opposes the death penalty and thinks Wrinkles should stay behind bars for the rest of his life. McIntire feels Wrinkles should be executed. (AP Photo/ Daniel R. Patmore)
