kaufman county district attorney
The smoke had barely cleared, after a veteran prosecutor was shot in broad daylight near the Kaufman County courthouse, when word spread about a possible prime suspect.
The Kaufman County Crime Stoppers board has voted to return the six-figure reward fund that was set aside for information on three high-profile murders.
The Texas Senate has unanimously confirmed Governor Rick Perry’s appointment of Erleigh Norville Wiley as the new Kaufman County District Attorney.
Calling it the most difficult period in Kaufman County history, on Thursday newly appointed District Attorney Erleigh Norville Wiley said her predecessor, Mike McLelland, continues to inspire her.
Governor Rick Perry has named a new Kaufman County district attorney. Wednesday afternoon Perry appointed Erleigh Norville Wiley of Forney as the new District Attorney.
A controversy has developed over the reward fund for help solving the murders of two Kaufman County prosecutors.
At the 2 Sisters Quilt Shoppe in Kaufman’s courthouse square, friends remember Cynthia McLelland. Bonnie DeLay says, “It’s just an awful loss. We’re never going to get to share those times again.” Cathy Spurlock says, “We’re going to miss that smile, if she wasn’t smiling, she was singing.”
Unnerved, but poised, Brandi Fernandez spoke lovingly about her former boss, Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia just days after they were murdered.
Fernandez says, “He and Cynthia were the mom and dad of the office. I still kind of expect him to walk through with a plate of cookies that she cooked us.”
During a Wednesday press conference officials with the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a North Texas man was arrested for making a terroristic threat against a judge in Kaufman County.
As North Texas prepares for the public memorial and funeral of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, heightened security continues in Kaufman County and across the state.
After the weekend murder of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, law enforcement presence at the Kaufman County Courthouse and other North Texas offices has been beefed up. One judge said Monday, “We obviously have some folks that are out to do harm to elected officials.”
It’s been nearly a month since a North Texas assistant district attorney in was shot and killed, just feet from the courthouse. Now authorities say, reward money for information in the case has reached six-figures.
