The Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were found dead in their home Saturday night, police say.
Investigators with the Kaufman County Sheriff's Department confirmed the deaths to NBC 5 Saturday night, but had little else to say in the early stages of the investigation.
Police have not said when the couple was found, how they were found or if they have any leads in the case. Additionally, investigators have not yet confirmed how the couple died.
Additionally, investigators have also not said whether the murders are connected to the slaying of Kaufman County assistant district attorney Mark Hasse, who was gunned down on his way to work in January .
With regard to Hasse's murder, McLelland said at the time that Hasse was a really, really good man and that he was an excellent friend and spectacular prosecutor who wouldn't be easily replaced. He added that Hasse was a man who was well aware of the dangers associated with being a prosecutor.
While addressing the media Jan. 31, McLelland also warned Hasse's killer(s) "I hope that the people that did this are watching. Because we're very confident that we're gonna find you, pull you out of whatever hole you're in , bring you back and let the people of Kaufman County prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law."
To date, no arrests have been made in connection with Hasse's murder
