Texas District Attorney and wife found dead

A Texas community is on edge after a district attorney who said he would put away the “dirt” who killed a colleague two months ago,  was shot to death alongside his wife in their home Saturday night.

Kaufman County Judge Bruce Wood said he thought there was a “strong connection” between the slayings of Mike and Cynthia McLelland and the shooting death of Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, who was killed on the courthouse steps while he walked to his office.

The  sheriff’s office, however, won’t officially say the killings are connected.
