Judge denies request to delay trial for Kaufman County killings

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of killing Kaufman County prosecutors went before a Rockwall County judge Friday morning.

Eric Williams is charged with capital murder for the March 2013 deaths of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, in their home. Assistant DA Mark Hasse was killed outside the Kaufman County courthouse in January 2013.

It was the first hearing for Williams since his attorneys asked for a change of venue from Kaufman to Rockwall County.

The defense attorneys asked for a delay in the case to have more time to evaluate evidence, but the judge denied that request.

Williams' wife, Kim, is also charged with capital murder.

Related to the case, sources told FOX 4 that investigators took boats out on Lake Tawakoni on Wednesday to search for gun parts.

Divers reportedly spent hours searching the lake for evidence linked to the murders, but did not find anything.
