Comprehensive Coverage Of Developments In Kaufman County

The funeral for Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, is under way Friday in Wortham. The town of some 1,000 residents is about 75 miles south of Dallas.

Dozens of law enforcement representatives from across the country are attending the service at First Baptist Church of Wortham and are expected to be graveside later at Wortham Cemetery.

The McLellands were found shot to death Saturday in their house near Forney, about 20 miles east of Dallas. No arrests have been made, but a $200,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the killer’s conviction.
