The wife of a former justice of the peace in Texas is being held on a capital murder charge in connection with the killings of Kaufman County District Attorney Michael McLelland, his wife Cynthia and an assistant district attorney, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Kim Williams, the wife of Eric Williams, is being held in the Kaufman County jail, the Morning News said.
Eric Williams, a former justice of the peace, was arrested last week on a count of making a terroristic threat. A sheriff's affidavit accused him of using his home computer to threaten police investigating the killings.
The McLellands were shot to death in their home in late March. McLelland's assistant district attorney, Mark Hasse, was shot to death in January.
