Full title - "Mystery Texas killings 'solved': Disgraced court official to be charged with murders of Texas district attorney, his wife and assistant DA after they convicted him of theft"
A former justice of the peace is reportedly set to be charged with three murders, including a former Texas district attorney and assistant DA, after he was arrested on Saturday.
Eric Williams, 46, has been arrested by authorities investigating the murders of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, last month - and the fatal shooting of ADA Mark Hasse in late January.
Williams was booked into Kaufman County Jail early Saturday morning for making terroristic threats and 'insufficient bond.' He is being held on a $3million bond.
Sources tell CBS11 that he will be charged with capital murder in the deaths of Mr and Mrs McLelland and the assistant attorney.
Williams had previously been successfully prosecuted by the murdered officials.
Police reportedly zeroed in on Williams after several emails making threats to other county officials were linked to him.

The $PLC must be crying bitter tears right now.
This will be a 2 line story right before the feature on Justin Bieber’s Anne Frank Story...
And the ones saying it was Mexican drug gangs have to recant.
How many did he kill under cover of his office?
This needs to be throughly investaged and all the folks who tried to cover for him over the years, and the lawyers who bribed him, the hookers who gave him favors for light treatment and so forth should all be dragged through the coals (metaphorically) to find out if he was a loner or part of a network of government killers and thugs.
Oops. Not the Aryan Brotherhood or the Cartels. Not a story anymore.
To the ‘fear mongers’ and idiots in the Government and Media, finding out a ‘White (emphasize WHITE) Supremacist gang OR Klan OR anything else they can think of’ was not directly ‘involved’, has to be right up there with finding out George Zimmerman wasn’t a WHITE file clerk or CEO in the terms of OH CRAP, we ‘blew’ it.
Now they will put all their efforts to the Abortion Butcher and dig into his files and find that he gave 25 bucks to a (supposed) “R” candidate for some miniscule office and the icing on the cake will be if he EVER said hello or goodbye to a known “TEA Party member” which of course will make him a Card Carrying Conservative and we better hope he never donated a dime to NRA, that would make him a full fledged NRA Lifetime Member.
Next, they`ll try to connect him to the KKK.
Wasnn’t there some other guy who quit his job as a prosecutor because he thought the cartel / skinhead mob might come after him next?
"He was a quiet man..."
“Williams to be a ‘nice guy’ who was known in the neighborhood for riding around town in his Segway.”
He rode a Segway Human Individual Transport? LOL.
That in itself made me suspect Democrat, but then this article reports that he "was known in the neighborhood for riding around town in his Segway."
Who but a Democrat would do that - especially in Texas?
We should disarm government employees.
How the worm turns.
We need background checks for all Segway owners.
I guess the X Federal Prosecutor that resigned in fear for his life will be flipping burgers at McDonalds?
Not likely, he’ll be promoted by Eric Holder to head the Civil Rights Division.
Smells funny. The media/government ginned up the false Aryan Brotherhood story. Why?
Dollars to donuts they knew a Segway-driving ex-judge was the murderer, but went ahead with the false narrative anyway.
On one of the news reports on the murders (about a week ago), they showed this guy riding his segway around the neighborhood. At one point, he stopped and gave them an interview. He did not come across as guilty, but there was something about him, such hubris, that I instantly did not like him. That rarely happens with me. He just set off alarm bells.
Or an Evangelical Christian, or a US Vet. They’ll surely find a way to “connect” him to DHS’ “Domestic Terrorist List”. He needs to fit their “agenda”, somehow.
Gee the libs and lame stream media had already tried and convicted the Aryan White Brotherhood for these murders.....they were wrong again!
You are exactly right...he exhibited the same cockiness that cop that killed his ex-wives did. Thought he was too smart for the legal system. Delusions of grandeur on display if you ask me.
Don’t be silly those evil white supremest framed this guy.
Where are all the people who thought the Mexican drug cartels put up the Aryan Brotherhood to commit these murders?
BTW, in CA we’ve have cops going after other cops, now in Texas we have other DA’s or court officials murdering DA’s?
If he rides a segway and was public employee in Texas, 99% chance he is a democrat. I would say 100%, but he could also be a green party member.
I’m not ready to buy the official story yet.
The shooter was a justice of the peace??
Boy, that’s a long ways from the Aryan Brotherhood!
Former Justice of the Peace arrested
Ya just can't trust anyone nowadays.
A republican, apparently.
"Republican challenger Eric Williams defeated 18-year incumbent Democrat Johnny Perry to win the Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace race in Tuesdays General Election."
Looks vaguely similar to Newman on Seinfeld . . .
What the heck is this clown wearing?
Are those terrycloth Segway clothes?
You got that right...Even the one of the DA victims son was calling this terrorism and all LE should be very concerned...
Seem to be another case of a disgruntled employee.
The judge became a ‘suspect’ hours after it was discovered. The police were doing their job while the media speculated it could be white supremacists or something.
I really hate the media.
“That was my thought, too. However, Kaufman County Observer, a local paper calls him “Republican Justice of the Peace Judge Eric Williams”.”
That piece of information will not serve to increase the number of posts on the thread.
Maybe he knew it was one of his own and didn't want any part of it.
The killer WAS political person or he wouldn’t have had the job he had... WAS HE A DEMOCRAT?
Since it’s not mentioned we can assume he was an active democrat... and the friggin ‘press’ will drop this story like a hot potato...
Where’s the scramble to tie his killing to his political beliefs now? God the jerks at the New York Times are soooo predictable.
That's the ONLY reason the press was interested in this story. They were praying it would be someone they could hate as much as Zimmerman... Well, if they prayed AND if Zimmerman had just been a little whiter... I doubt the MSM will work at drawing connections between his being a violent killer and his liberal beliefs... Nah, that's not what the Washington Post wants to write about...
The New York Times doesn't think it's fit to print anymore either - doesn't fit their preconceived notions...
Left wing environmental extremest? That's a dangerous bunch - the NEW YORK TIMES WILL RUN WITH THIS STORY NOW.../s
Wait a minute here.
Who is the media made up of?
Ya got former prosecutors and others playing TV commentators.
Here is video of a former prosecutor, judge, elected official and District Attorney clearly implying or suggesting the Aryan Brotherhood was involved.
No, that's his mug shot.
Occasionally the cops will zip a suspect up in body bag type suit/clothing to preserve (seal in) evidence. It appears to be the case here.
Holy turf battle, Batman!
I had no idea (guess I'll have to get arrested more often).
Do you mean evidence like clothing? Chemicals on the skin? Or maybe the suspect is hiding something on their person?
But now that's is one more killing by some democrat?
NBC has lost interest in the story. NBC and the Washington Post might as well be part of the NAZI propaganda machine... they're that creepy. The New York Times will be calling their crews back too - it's not a story when the killers' a liberal...
That was my thought, too. However, Kaufman County Observer, a local paper calls him "Republican Justice of the Peace Judge Eric Williams".
My fault... I keep on trying to forget how long the GOP made us (and continues to make us) accountable for the Charlie Crist, Arlen Specter and Mike Bloomberg "Republicans" - even when practically all FReepers knew what they were all along.
Segway Republican... that's a laugh!
Or the Tea Party.
