Video: Wife of convict arrested in murders of Texas DAs

posted at 10:41 am on April 17, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

The murders of two Texas Assistant District Attorneys and one spouse had a lot of people speculating about white supremacists in the Lone Star State.  Instead, police have arrested the wife of a former Justice of the Peace that the two DAs prosecuted for theft last year, after discovering the suspected getaway vehicle in the JP’s storage facility:

The wife of a former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with capital murder in relation to the deaths of Mike and Cynthia McLelland and Mark Hasse, CBS Station KTVT reports.

KTVT reports that Kim Lene Williams was taken into custody just before 3:00 a.m., and charged with a single count of capital murder.

She is 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 KTVT that Williams is also expected to be charged with capital murder in relation to the deaths.

Dallas TV station WFAA has this breaking-news update on the case:

Authorities also said they were able to trace a threatening e-mail sent the day after the McLellands were fatally shot in their home back to Mr. Williams. The e-mail, sent anonymously, threatened more attacks.

The McLellands were found shot to death in their Forney home on March 31. Their deaths came two months after the assistant district attorney Hasse was killed while walking to the Kaufman County Courthouse on Jan. 31.

Mr. McLelland and Hasse were involved in the prosecution of Mr. Williams, who was convicted of stealing three computer monitors from the county and lost his license to practice law in March of 2012.

When the murders occurred last month, speculation arose about white-supremacist groups and/or Mexican drug cartels supposedly declaring war on American law enforcement. Instead, the truth seems to be much more prosaic — a case of revenge against prosecutors who successfully prosecuted a crime. This holds lessons for observers who are tempted to leap onto hobby horses in advance of the evidence in crimes large and small — a lesson we should probably learn this week, too.

“In Colorado, a top prison official was gunned down in his home. In Texas, two prosecutors were killed, a third has now pulled out of a case against the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas for, quote, ‘security reasons.’ So, we have people using guns to settle their disputes with public officials, using their Second Amendment remedies. Don’t like the sound of this? Think it’s an overstatement? Well, there come times when overstatement becomes the truth out there. We’ve got a Texas senator, Ted Cruz, who won’t let the Senate hold a democratic vote on gun safety. So, no democracy. We’ve got people out there using guns to get even with public officials, intimidating those they don’t kill. This is where we are with guns in this country. Second Amendment remedies being executed on public officials. Refusal by some elected officials [Senator Cruz] to let us have a democratic vote on what to do about it. And this is where we live in April of 2013.”

He didn’t lose his licence permanently. It was an interlocutory suspension.

That said, a felony conviction always leads to either a licence suspension or disbarment. He was convicted of two felonies last year.

Sure, but don’t people normally just return the stuff, pay restitution and/or certainly lose their jobs? As it turns out he sent threatening emails to a former girlfriend and another employee which is what I assume escalated the prosecution. I’m just thinking about the price of three computer monitors and their value compared to what his life has become. Hmmmm, I wonder if the girlfriend was pre or post marriage?

Cindy Munford on April 17, 2013 at 11:51 AM

Are you thinking it would be a misdemeanor based on value? Looking at the definitions of misdemeanor theft in TX, they probably did qualify as a Class A or B Misdemeanor. I still want his law license suspended at a minimum if he’s guilty of a criminal action. (Speeding and such fall under a different classification – help me out here, RWM.)

GWB on April 17, 2013 at 12:00 PM

GWB on April 17, 2013 at 12:00 PM

I was indeed basing much of my opinion on the cost of the stolen items. And as RWM noted, the license was suspended, which made more sense. I would still think his options would be limited but he could still make a living. I just think there has to be more to this. Normal people don’t steal what they should be able to afford or send threatening emails to people. I bet this case is going to be a doozey because it sure isn’t logical.

Cindy Munford on April 17, 2013 at 12:09 PM

No. He won’t get it back if he is convicted of murder, especially capital murder. Of course, he doesn’t need a law licence to file appeals. It can be done pro se. Regardless, he will have a team of appellate lawyers if he is sentenced to death. Death sentences carry an automatic right of appeal, which means that the state has to provide counsel.

As noted above, I thought computer monitors were pretty inexpensive. There is more to this story than meets the eye.

Cindy Munford on April 17, 2013 at 11:51 AM

He was convicted of burglary of a building (TEX PE. CODE ANN. § 30.02) and theft by a public servant (TEX PE. CODE ANN. § 31.03).

Theft/Larceny may receive charges varying from a “Class C” misdemeanor for the most minor of thefts, all the way up to a first degree felony for the most serious of thefts. The following guidelines are generally set for varying degrees of theft based on the amount or value of property taken:

* “Class C” misdemeanor: $50 or less

* “Class B” misdemeanor: $50 or more, but less than $500

* “Class A” misdemeanor: $500 or more, but less than $1,500

* State jail felony: $1,500 or more, but less than $20,000

* Third degree felony: $20,000 or more, but less than $100,000

* Second degree felony: $100,000 or more, but less than $200,000

* First degree felony: $200,000 or more

TEX PE. CODE ANN. § 31.03 (f)(1):

(f) An offense described for purposes of punishment by Subsections (e)(1)-(6) is increased to the next higher category of offense if it is shown on the trial of the offense that:

(1) the actor was a public servant at the time of the offense and the property appropriated came into the actor’s custody, possession, or control by virtue of his status as a public servant;

I don’t know the value of the property, but I’m thinking that it may have been a “Class A” misdemeanor but for his position in government, which likely bumped the theft up to felony status. He was sentenced to 2 years probation, which would be consistent with a sentence for a ‘state jail felony.’ Crimes with sentences over 2 years are prison felonies.

Products of the high self esteem culture, where any slight is the most grievous crime imaginable, if it happens to them.. I’ve seen it on a smaller scale,.. huge dumb as a post white kid, stopped for shoplifting, screaming cursing, threatening the life of the woman who stopped him,.. and when he was blocked into a corner while the police were called by myself, the manager and about 3 more employees… AND three male shoppers rushing to help..

He screams.. “WHY DO YOU GIVE ME SO MUCH ANGER… YOU ARE DISRESPECTING ME”… followed by a string of cursing, and a personal challenge to me.. then he earned an assault charge for spitting on me..

There is a generation out there, convinced the world exists as their personal plaything, and completely without any empathy at all.

The thing is, because of the conviction, Williams lost his JP seat and his law license. So, carrying three computer displays out of a county building (stupid idea) cost him his career. With a misdemeanor record, he can still get a job some places (but probably not in retail), but never any job like he had. Our society has become so morally bankrupt that some people don’t have any compunction about committing murder.

Sorry, you’re right, it was a felony, not a misdemeanor. Plus, McLelland and Hasse were pushing for jail time for Williams, not just probation. That’s probably what pushed Williams over the edge. Plus, Williams already had a rep as being an a-hole, and a little eccentric and kooky.

Now that I think about it, it makes sense that authorities didn’t have any leads in the Mark Hasse case in January, given that Williams had been a JP.

And if they are Republicans, it fits the MO of those monsters, at least that is the story line…

See my post above. All involved were Republicans, which makes sense, because Kaufman is a very conservative county.

I’m sure the left will find some interesting ways to spin the R on R action.

The couple, married for 15 years, both have chronic health problems.

According to the DMN article:

Kim Williams suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome, she testified. Sjogren’s disease is an autoimmune disease that cause a lack of moisture in the body and can cause dry mouth, dry eyes, etc.

Kim Williams has lost all of her teeth. She is on disability.

Eric Williams is a Type 1 diabetic and has sleep apnea, Kim Williams testified at his trial. He wears a machine when he sleeps at night to help him breathe.

She told the court that she feels like she has “the flu times 10.” She said she constantly aches and has a fever.

It makes it really hard for me to be mobile and do things that any normal person without this disease can do,” she testified.

According to court testimony, she could drive.

Authorities have not said what evidence they have implicating Kim Williams.

One eyewitness to the Hasse murder told authorities that the gunman — dressed all in black — got into the front passenger seat of a car before it drove off after the shootings.

So, she’s somewhat disabled, but was able to act as the getaway driver in two murders. The unmarked Crown Vic police interceptor (bought used) that was seen in the neighborhood where the McLellands lived was found in the storage facility in Seagoville this past weekend (approx. 10 miles from Forney, where the McLellands lived).
