KAUFMAN, TX (KLTV) -

Federal and local authorities are executing a search warrant at a North Texas home as part of an investigation into the slayings of the local district attorney and his wife.

Authorities were searching the home Friday of former Kaufman County justice of the peace Eric Williams, who was prosecuted and convicted of theft by the Kaufman County district attorney's office.

District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were found dead in their home on March 30. Their deaths came two months after a prosecutor in McLelland's office, Mark Hasse, was fatally shot as he was leaving work.

Williams hasn't been named a suspect in any of the deaths.

Kaufman is about 30 miles southeast of Dallas.
