ROCKWALL, Texas (AP) — A jury will soon get the murder case of a man accused of killing a North Texas district attorney and his wife in their home.
Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday in the case of Eric Williams, a former Kaufman County official who faces the death penalty if convicted of capital murder.
Authorities say Williams killed Kaufman District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia in March 2013, two months after gunning down a prosecutor outside a courthouse building.
They say Williams wanted revenge after being prosecuted for stealing county-owned computer monitors.
Prosecutors presented their case in just three days, including evidence that Williams kept a getaway car and at least 30 guns in a secret storage unit.
Williams’ attorneys rested without presenting a case.
