KAUFMAN COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
Authorities investigating the shooting deaths of Kaufman County D.A. Mike McLelland and his wife appear to have narrowed their focus on a former justice of the peace prosecuted last year by the D.A.'s office for theft. Eric Williams was arrested Saturday morning on a charge of making a terroristic threat. Police have searched his home. No suspects have been named in the two deaths.
Williams was questioned by investigators hours after the McLellands were killed.
"They did a gun residue test and I gave them my cell phones so they could get all the information they wanted," Williams said.
Authorities say that they have not officially named Williams as a suspect in either case, and records show that no charges have been filed.
Williams was prosecuted by Hasse and McLelland last year for stealing three county computers. He confessed to the thefts in a taped interview with investigators. Williams was given probation in the case but lost his license to practice law.
