Texas DA and Wife Murdered

Less than two weeks after Colorado's chief of corrections was murdered, another law enforcement official has been gunned down.  Tanya Eiserer and Tasha Tsiaperas report for the Dallas Morning News:

Kaufman County's district attorney and his wife were found slain Saturday, raising fears that their deaths may be part of a plot that included the killing of one of the county's assistant district attorneys in January.

Kaufman Police Chief Chris Aulbaugh and other officials confirmed that Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia Woodward McLelland, had been shot at their home near Forney.

Their deaths followed the Jan. 31 slaying of Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse.

"It is a shock," Aulbaugh said late Saturday. "It was a shock with Mark Hasse, and now you can just imagine the double shock. ... Until we know what happened, I really can't confirm that it's related, but you always have to assume until it's proven otherwise."
