URGENT >> BULLETIN >> MOVING: Mike and Cynthia McLelland were found shot dead in their home on Easter Eve. The McLellands lived in Forney, Texas. Mike McLelland is the district attorney of Kaufman County. The murders,  WFAA.com is reporting, may have involved a 223-caliber assault rifle, similar to an AR-15.

The murders of the McLellands follow by two months the shooting death of Mark Hasse. Hasse, 57, was an assistant district attorney in Kaufman County. He was gunned down in broad daylight on Jan. 31, a short distance from the courthouse.
