The charge was in relation to her late husband’s death, which occurred in 2012.

According to the office of Gregory Sheldon, the attorney who represented Winslow, her case was “nolle prosequi for lack of evidence.”

Buckingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney E.M. Wright said that the prosecution ordered the nolle prosequi motion because if the case was continued, the court could not come to a conviction.
