Tennessee authorities will question the wife of a minister found shot to death in a church parsonage.

The body of Matthew Winkler, the minister of the Fourth Street Church of Christ, in Selmer, was found Wednesday in the bedroom of the parsonage by members.

His wife and three daughters and the family's minivan were missing.

A spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Jennifer Johnson, says Mary Winkler and the girls have been found safe in Alabama.

Police in the town of Orange Beach found them stopped on the side of the road in the van.

Johnson says Winkler is considered a suspect, but is not under arrest.
