|Description||"Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were found dead inside their Forney home. |
Lt. Justin Lewis with the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Dept confirmed to 1080 KRLD that both DA McLelland and his wife Cynthia were murdered.
Because of the location of the home, in an unincorporated area of Kaufman County, the crime falls under the jurisdiction of the sheriff’s office.
Sources tell CBS 11 news that the DA was shot multiple times with what is believed to be an assault rifle while Cynthia McLelland was only shot once. Sources also say that there were no signs of forced entry.
Kaufman Police Department Chief Chris Aulbaugh said law enforcement officials will be looking at the latest shooting to see if it is related to the murder of Kaufman County assistant district attorney Mark Hasse.
Hasse was chief of the organized crime unit when he was an assistant prosecutor in Dallas County in the 1980s, and he handled similar cases in Kaufman County. After Hasse was killed, McLelland had said Hasse was one of 12 attorneys on his staff, all of whom handle hundreds of cases at a time."
