Texas County On High Alert After Second Law Official Is Killed

Monday, April 01, 2013

Kaufman County, Texas, is coming to grips Monday with the Easter-weekend shootings of the district attorney and his wife at their home — just two months after his top assistant district attorney was gunned down on the way to work. Local, state and FBI investigations are in high gear, and it's not clear whether officials are tying the latest killings to a case last month in Colorado, where the state's prison chief was shot and killed at home.
