Two funerals for murdered pastor's wife


/*Rosemary Wynn*/, the wife of /*Rev. Sam Wynn*/, was found badly beaten in her home last last week.

Authorities named Rev. Wynn a person of interest in his wife's death. He is the pastor of /*Holland United Methodist Church*/.

Methodist Bishop Al Gwinn recently decided to promote Wynn to Fayetteville superintendent within the Methodist Church..

Even with a murder investigation, Gwinn says that promotion will still take effect July 1. He will act as a pastor to pastors..

"He's greatly respected," Bishop Gwinn said. "And Sam has demonstrated again and again, but especially here at Holland's, his effectiveness as a leader."

So far, the church is leaving the question about their pastor to law enforcement..

No charges have been filed in the case.

Two separate services were held for Rosemary. One was a funeral in Wake County and the other was a memorial service in Bladen County.

Rosemary's family did not attend the Wake County funeral, which was held at Holland United Methodist Church where Wynn has been pastor since June 2005.
