WORTHAM, Texas (AP) - The son of slain Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland says his father kept a gun "in every room of his house" but couldn't reach one when his killer or killers slipped into his home because he had put the weapons away hours before.
J.R. McLelland said the guns had been stored for the protection of visitors attending a party the night before.
McLelland says he believes that, had the weapons been in their normal spots, his father likely would have tried to reach one.
Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia were found shot to death March 30. Those slayings occurred two months after Assistant DA Mark Hasse was gunned down outside the county courthouse.
No arrests have been made in either case.
