Texas DA, Wife Shot Dead in Home

The district attorney of Kaufman, Texas, Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife, Cynthia Woodward McLelland, 65, were found shot and killed on Saturday in their home, just weeks after his deputy was killed. One law-enforcement officer said it appeared the door had been kicked in and “there were shell casings everywhere.” Authorities in Kaufman County said they believed all other employees in the district attorney’s office have been accounted for, and police are investigating whether the McLellands’ deaths are related to the killing of Mark Hasse, a Kaufman County prosecutor who was killed on Jan. 31 while walking to his car. The FBI had also been investigating whether Hasse’s death is linked to the murder of Colorado prison chief Tom Clements.
