Kaufman County DA
Eric Williams’ estranged wife and accused accomplice, Kim Williams, will plead guilty to the 2013 Kaufman County Murders
Eric Williams, the man standing trial for the murders that shook Kaufman County residents, stood up and told the judge Wednesday that he would not take the witness stand in his own defense.
Recently more than two dozen members of the Kaufman Quilt Guild gathered to make a quilt for one of their former members, Cynthia McLelland, who along with her husband, Mike, the Kaufman County District Attorney, were murdered one year ago.
Brandi Fernandez was tapped to lead the District Attorney’s office on an interim basis after Mike McLelland’s assassination in March. But now that a new DA has stepped in full time, Ms. Fernandez has taken her leave.
It was Mark Hasse’s job to take down criminals, and he went after some of the worst. Now investigators say they are reviewing the cases he prosecuted, for possible clues into his murder.
