KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) Authorities say the man charged in the deaths last year of two North Texas prosecutors had intended to kill other law enforcement officials.
Court documents filed Tuesday contend former Justice of the Peace Eric Williams sought to kill Kaufman County District Attorney Erleigh Norville Wiley, who was previously a judge in Kaufman County.
Records also allege Williams had targeted former district court Judge Glen Ashworth. They do not indicate why Wiley and Ashworth were marked.
Williams faces capital murder charges in the shooting deaths of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia. He's also accused of killing Kaufman County prosecutor Mark Hasse.
Authorities believe Williams bore a grudge against McLelland and Hasse for successfully prosecuting him for stealing three county-owned computer monitors. That conviction cost Williams his law license.
