Kaufman County DA and wife killed


A spokesperson with the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Saturday that District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were shot and killed by unknown assailants sometime this weekend.

Kaufman County Public Information Officer Justin Lewis said officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

“We are in the preliminary stages of the investigation and have no other information at this time,” Lewis said.

Lewis said he did not know when the shooting occurred, or whether or not the shooting was connected to the Jan. 31 killing of Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse.
