A search warrant affidavit released Wednesday says the silver 2001 Mercury Sable was found at a Dallas wrecking yard. Workers said it had been towed in March from a self-storage complex where Eric Williams had a storage unit rented for him. Owners of the complex said the car was abandoned there.

The vehicle resembles one witnesses said was used in the killing of Kaufman County prosecutor Mark Hasse. He and District Attorney Mike McLelland won a theft conviction of Williams, costing Williams his justice of the peace position and law license.

Williams and his wife, Kim, are charged with capital murder in the slayings of Hasse, McLelland and McLelland’s wife, Cynthia.
