    The wife of a former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace was taken into custody early Wednesday morning and charged with capital murder in relation to the deaths of Mike and Cynthia McLelland and Mark Hasse. Kim Lene Williams was arrested just before 3:00 a.m. and is now being held on a $10 million bond. Her husband, Eric Williams, was arrested on Saturday morning for allegedly making terroristic threats against city officials. He is being held behind bars on a $3 million bond. Sources told CBS 11 News that Williams is also expected to be charged with capital murder in...

    The murders of two prosecutors in Kaufman County, Texas, apparently has prompted a federal prosecutor to withdraw from a major racketeering case in Houston, the latest sign that attacks on lawmen are having a chilling effect on the judicial system. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hileman sent defense attorneys an email Tuesday saying he was withdrawing from the case against the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas due to safety concerns. “I understand why someone would want to step back, and it makes sense to me, especially people who have families,” defense attorney Richard Ely, who is representing one of the defendants in...

    One of the theories floating around about the murder of a Texas district attorney and one of his prosecutors is that the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas is behind the killings as revenge for prosecution. If so, the group can consider its message received. A federal prosecutor has just resigned from a big racketeering case against the white supremacist group in Houston, reports the Houston Chronicle and Dallas Morning News. The US attorney dropped out over what both papers call "security concerns." Another attorney from the Justice Department is heading from DC to Texas as a replacement. “He’s obviously made a...
  • Suspicion in Death of Texas District Attorney Shifts to White Supremacists

    Suspicion in the slayings of a Texas district attorney and his wife shifted Monday to a violent white supremacist prison gang that was the focus of a December law enforcement bulletin warning that its members might try to attack police or prosecutors. The weekend deaths of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, who were found fatally shot in their home, were especially jarring because they happened just a couple of months after one of the county's assistant district attorneys, Mark Hasse, was killed near his courthouse office. And less than two weeks ago, Colorado's prison chief was...

    Today marks the four year anniversary of when ATF Special Agent Jay Dobyns’ house was burned to the ground. The blaze was set to his home while his wife and children were sleeping inside at 3 a.m. As a refresher, Dobyns is a 25-year ATF veteran and worked undercover in the Hells Angels gang for two years in what was known as “Operation Black Biscuit.” When he got out after putting dozens of the Angels in prison, members of the gang in coordination with hard criminals in prisons around the country, issued death threats against him and his family. These...

Bales of the Eastern District of Texas and Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division. The indictment, returned by the federal grand jury on Jan. 21, 2010, and unsealed today, charges the six...

    A federal judge sentenced three suspected leaders of the violent Aryan Brotherhood prison gang to life terms Tuesday, saying the sentences were the only just response to three decades of orchestrated murders and attempted murders in some of the nation's toughest penitentiaries. Barry "The Baron" Mills, 58, was sentenced to four consecutive life terms without possibility of parole, a sentence automatically imposed after a jury deadlocked earlier this year on the death penalty. Tyler "The Hulk" Bingham, 59, also escaped the death penalty but received three consecutive life terms without possibility of parole. A third defendant, Edgar "The Snail" Hevle,...

    Two Aryan Brotherhood ringleaders were convicted of murder, racketeering and conspiracy in July after a four-month trial. Now, as their sentencing hearing began Monday, they were to learn their punishment. Barry "The Baron" Mills and Tyler "The Hulk" Bingham were expected to receive life sentences Monday following a sweeping federal case aimed at dismantling one of the country's most notorious prison gangs. To prevent communication with gang members and others, prosecutors were also asking a U.S. District Court judge to impose bans on visits, letters or phone calls from anyone but their attorneys, and on keeping writing implements, paper or...

    SANTA ANA, Calif. - Jurors were unable to decide Friday whether to impose the death penalty on two convicted leaders of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang, prompting a mistrial in the matter and giving the men life in prison. The same jury convicted Barry "The Baron" Mills and Tyler "The Hulk" Bingham in July. Jurors were then asked to determine whether the two should be sentenced to death or life in prison without possibility of parole. After 3 1/2 days of deliberations, they told the judge Thursday they were deadlocked, but he ordered them to return to the jury room...

    Federal prosecutors in Southern California toiled for years to build a case strong enough to cut off the head of the notorious Aryan Brotherhood prison gang and end its 40-year reign over the federal and state prison system. On Friday, the government saw the fruits of its labor: a sweeping verdict that convicted four top gang leaders of murder, conspiracy and racketeering and made two of the defendants eligible for the death penalty. Yet as prosecutors celebrated, legal analysts and prison gang experts questioned whether the government's near-complete victory will translate into what authorities so keenly desire - the eventual...

    A jury convicted four alleged leaders of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang Friday on charges of murder, conspiracy and racketeering in a federal case aimed at dismantling the violent white supremacist organization. The four defendants did not show any reaction when the verdicts were read in a 15-minute proceeding. Most jurors, who deliberated for two weeks, either looked down or away from the defendants. The trial is part of one of the largest federal capital cases, with more than a dozen people potentially facing the death penalty. More defendants face trials in Los Angeles later this year. Barry "The Baron"...

    SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- A former member of a white supremacist prison gang testified Friday that he was slipped two bullets and ordered by an alleged gang kingpin to hide them until they could be used to kill a black inmate who had assaulted the late mob leader John Gotti. Kevin Roach took the stand for a second day to testify in one of the largest capital punishment cases in U.S. history, aimed at the leadership of the Aryan Brotherhood gang. Roach said another inmate slipped him one bullet by pushing it under the door of a prison library....

    A 26-year-old man with connections to a prison gang was arrested early Tuesday morning after Lubbock police found a live bomb in his vehicle. Patrol officers observed Jeremy Lynn Womack of Lubbock acting suspiciously and pulled him over near the 7300 block of University Avenue about 12:30 a.m., Sgt. John Gomez said. Felix Garcia, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives resident agent in charge, said intelligence information and tattoos visible on Womack's body indicate he is a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, a white supremacist prison gang. A narcotics-sniffing dog indicated to police there were drugs in the silver...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Alongside allegations such as secret messages written in urine, the opening of the Aryan Brotherhood trial includes a charge that late Mafia boss John Gotti asked the prison gang to carry out a hit. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Emmick told jurors in one of the largest death penalty cases in the United States that Gotti sought out the Aryan Brotherhood, also known as the Brand, in July 1996 after he was beaten by a black inmate, Walter Johnson, at the U.S. penitentiary in Marion, Illinois,

    SANTA ANA, Calif. - Federal prosecutors bent on taking down the violent Aryan Brotherhood prison gang could be hard-pressed to win the death sentences they want in one of the largest capital punishment cases in U.S. history, legal experts said. Several unusual elements are in play in the case set to begin this week involving 32 murders and attempted murders allegedly orchestrated by leaders of the white supremacist gang. Many of the 16 defendants who could face the death penalty are already serving long prison terms, and nearly all of their alleged victims were other inmates convicted of violent felonies....

    SANTA ANA, Calif. - The inmates had to heat the letter to draw out the message, written in invisible ink. When they did, their orders were clear. Within hours, prosecutors say, members of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang sneaked into a nearby cellblock and killed two black inmates with handmade shanks as part of an order to "go to war" with blacks. The deaths are two of the 32 murders and attempted murders detailed by federal prosecutors in a sweeping case against the Aryan Brotherhood, a violent white supremacist prison gang that has infiltrated nearly every federal and state prison...
