MESQUITE (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says a slain prosecutor and his wife were aware of the dangers of his job but his determination to “do right” by people wasn’t diminished.

Perry was among those who spoke Thursday at a memorial for Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia. Both were found shot to death Saturday in their house near Forney, about 20 miles east of Dallas. No arrests have been made.

Their deaths came two months after Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was gunned down Jan. 31 while going to work. His death is unsolved.

Perry says Hasse’s death weighed “heavy” on the McLellands’ minds and hearts. And he says they were too vibrant and full of life to be gone so quickly.
