Second Prosecutor Shot to Death in Texas

Wife killed as well


The district attorney of a largely rural county southeast of Dallas and his wife were found shot to death at their home Saturday night in Forney, Tex., two months after the county's lead prosecutor was shot and killed as he walked to his office.

The fatal shootings of the district attorney of Kaufman County, Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife, Cynthia, 65, shocked law enforcement officials and residents, many of whom were still stunned by the murder of one of Mr. McLelland's prosecutors, Mark E. Hasse, 57, who was killed on Jan. 31 as he walked to work in a parking lot near the county courthouse.
