Despite widespread speculation that “white supremacists” were behind the killings of two prosecutors in Texas (and the wife of one of the prosecutors), it turned out that a disgruntled Texas Justice of the Peace was behind the murders.
As in the Newtown and Boston Marathon cases, initial media speculation and reporting was almost entirely wrong.
National media attention on the case mostly dropped once the “white supremacist” angle was gone.
Now the wife of the suspect also has been arrested:
Kim Williams, the 46-year-old wife of former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace Eric Williams, was arrested and charged with capital murder.
Authorities have not revealed whether the charge is related to her husband’s arrest. She is currently being held at the Kaufman County Jail on a $10 million bond, sources said.
Over the weekend, Mr. Williams, 46, was arrested on a terroristic threat charge. Sources told News 8 evidence linked Mr. Williams to the murders of prosecutor Mark Hasse, 57, and District Attorney Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife Cynthia, 65.
He was arrested at his home early Saturday morning and is being held at the Kaufman County Jail on a $3 million bond.
Previous to Mrs. Williams’ arrest, sources told News 8 authorities were awaiting ballistic test results on weapons found in a storage locker rented in Seagoville on behalf of the former justice of the peace. More than 20 weapons were found inside the locker.
