Suspect is Wife of Disgraced Official
By Harold Hutchison
Authorities in Texas have made an arrest in the murders of Mike McLelland and his wife, who were found dead on 30 March in their home near Forney, Texas. The murders triggered speculation about involvement by Mexican drug cartels or the Aryan Brotherhood, but the truth turned out to be something very different, and closer to home.
Kim Lene Williams was arrested and charged with capital murder in the killings. According to a report by FoxNews.com, her husband, Eric Williams, had been investigated for theft, and who was under arrest on charges of making terroristic threats.
Mr. Williams was a justice of the peace in Texas. Authorities are investigating to see if he had any connection to the killing of the McLellands. Mrs. Williams is also being charged in the January murder of ADA Mark Hasse.
