KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) - The mayor of the city where a north Texas prosecutor and his wife were found killed in their house says the attack does not appear to have been random.
Kaufman County sheriff's Lt. Justin Lewis said Saturday that the bodies of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were found Saturday. Two months earlier, an assistant district attorney was gunned down near the office.
Police, FBI agents, Texas Rangers and deputies are investigating.
Forney Mayor Darren Rozell, whose suburban Dallas city is nearest the slaying scene, says the attack "appears to be a targeted act" and is urging the 40,000 residents in the area to be calm.
