KAUFMAN (AP) — A former justice of the peace and his wife were indicted on capital murder charges today in the deaths of two North Texas prosecutors who were fatally shot earlier this

year, one outside the local courthouse and the other inside his home with his wife.

Eric and Kim Williams were each indicted by a Kaufman County grand jury for the deaths of Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, District Attorney Mike McLelland and McLelland’s wife, Cynthia.

The couple was arrested in April for what prosecutors allege was a meticulous plot to avenge Eric Williams’ conviction for stealing three county computer monitors in 2012.
