Ex-justice’s wife arrested in Texas prosecutor murders
The wife of a former justice of the peace in Texas has been arrested on accusations linked to the killings of the Kaufman County District Attorney, his wife and an assistant prosecutor, the Dallas Morning News reported this morning.
Kim Williams, 46, was taken to jail around 3 a.m. Wednesday and faces one count of capital murder. Law enforcement told the newspaper they also expect to charge her husband, Eric Williams, with capital murder charges. He was detained days ago on a charge of making a terrorist threat, but has professed his innocence, the newspaper said.
The charges stem from the shooting deaths of Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife Cynthia, 65, at their home on March 30. Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, 57, was shot to death on Jan. 31 outside the county courthouse.
The killings received wide press attention, since they were part of a string of law enforcement-related deaths that included homicides in Colorado and West Virginia.
The Morning News reported that authorities think Mr. Williams, a disbarred justice of the peace, was angry at the prosecutors for pressing charges against him last year for the theft of three computer monitors.
