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.
A former justice of the peace was arrested on Monday and charged with making a terrorist threat in the case of the killings of two Texas prosecutors.
Texas prosecutors are on high alert, as the suspects in the weekend killing of tough-talking Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife are still at large.
The FBI and the Texas Rangers have taken the lead in the investigation of the shooting deaths of Kaufman County, Texas, District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, whose bodies were found Saturday night inside their rural Forney, Texas, home.
Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was assassinated two months ago. Mr. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and took extra care when answering the door at his home.
Investigators are pouring through the files of an aggressive Texas prosecutor who was shot dead Thursday, seeking clues to the identity of the masked killer.
On the very day his top deputy was killed, Mr. McLelland said, "We're very confident that we're going to find you, we're going to pull you out of the hole you're in, we're going to bring you back and let the people of Kaufman County prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law."
