Former JP Now Charged with Capital Murder in Kaufman County DA Slayings

Kaufman County

The former Justice of the Peace who has been in jail on a terroristic threat charge is now formally charged with capital murder in connection with the slayings of the Kaufman County DA, his wife, and an assistant District Attorney.

Eric Williams was formerly charged with the murders Thursday, a day after his wife Kim Williams was arrested and charged with capital murder.

Authorities announced Thursday that Eric Lyle Williams is charged in the shooting deaths of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, last month, and assistant prosecutor Mark Hasse in January.

Authorities say the 46-year-old emailed an anonymous threat to law officers one day after the McLellands were found dead.

Williams’ wife was arrested Wednesday and charged with capital murder in the killings.

An arrest affidavit alleges she confessed to taking part in the killings and told her investigators her husband was the gunman.
