3 killed in 2 incident spree March 30, 2013: Assassination of DA Mike McLelland District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were apparently targeted when murdered in their Dallas-area home by the same gunman after Eric Williams just two months after he gunned down Marke Hasse, one of McLelland's deputies, and two weeks after Colorado prisons director Tom Clements was murdered at his home in unconnected attack. McLelland was part of a multi-agency task force that indicted 34 members of the Aryan Brotherhood in October. Hasse was shot to death outside the county courthouse shortly after officials were warned of a revenge plot by members of the gang. McLelland openly considered the possibility that Hasse was murdered because of his department's work, and reportedly decided to carry a gun around for personal protection. Eric and Kim Williams both face capital murder charges. Suspect Eric Williams who was arrested was a once-respected local attorney and former justice of the peace. His wife, Kim Williams,she confessed that her husband shot Hasse and the McLellands and that she drove with him to both murders. She led police to a lake where a gun used in shooting Mark Hasse was found. The motive for Eric Williams was retribution after Hasse and District Attorney Mike McLelland prosecuted him for the theft of county equipment
