Kaufman County arrest not linked to DA's killing

Posted: Updated:

A sheriff's official says a man has been arrested for making a threat during the investigation into the killings of a Texas prosecutor and his wife, but there is no indication he's connected to the deaths.

Kaufman County sheriff's Lt. Justin Lewis said Wednesday that 56-year-old Nick Morale has been arrested on a charge of making a terroristic threat.

Lewis says Morale called the tip line established by authorities after the killings of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia and used it to threaten a specific county official. Authorities aren't identifying the official.

Lewis says there's nothing to link Morale to the McLellands' deaths or the January killing of Kaufman County assistant district attorney Mark Hasse and he's not a suspect in either case.
