Arrest former JP, wife for murder of Kaufman DA's

Kaufman – Investigators arrested former Justice of the Peace Eric Williams for terroristic threat, a Class A misdemeanor, and set his bond at $1 million.

When his wife, Kim, confessed to being there when he pulled the trigger on Chief Prosecutor Mark Hasse in a courthouse parking lot, then two months later murdering the DA, Mike McLelland, and his wife, Cynthia, on Easter Sunday morning.

It all began when video surveillance caught the judge carrying a computer and monitor out of an office in the courthouse, later found on his office desk. His house was the subject of an all-day search in which officers seized guns and computers from his house and his in-laws' house. When Mr. Hasse prosecuted him for that crime, he wound up jobless.

When his wife confessed, according to an affidavit, she implicated herself and her husband in the shooting deaths of the DA and the prosecutor.
