Lawyers argue over psych exam for man accused of murdering Maryville minister

| February 1, 2012

EDWARDSVILLE • Lawyers continue to wrangle over details of a proposed new psychiatric examination of Terry Joe Sedlacek, accused of fatally shooting a minister during a church service in Maryville in 2009.

Sedlacek, from Troy, Ill., was charged with first-degree murder after the March 8, 2009, shooting of the Rev. Fred Winters as the minister delivered a Sunday-morning sermon at the First Baptist Church of Maryville. Sedlacek also is accused of stabbing two members of the congregation who rushed to subdue him.

The suspect apparently had no connections to the church or Winters.

Sedlacek, now 30, has been ruled unfit to stand trial and is being held at the Alton Mental Health Center.
