Kaufman County Public Information Officer Justin Lewis tells KLTV that Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were found dead Saturday.

Details on where they were found and how they died have not yet been released. The Kaufman County Sheriff's office is continuing to investigate.

WFAA in Dallas is reporting that McLelland and his wife Cynthia were found shot dead inside their Forney home on Saturday night. They also say that the front door of McLelland's home was kicked in. Currently the FBI, a U.S. Marshal's Task Force and Texas Rangers are at the scene. 

Officials also said that it is not yet clear if this is related to the shooting death of former Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse. Hasse was shot in the parking lot of the Kaufman County Courthouse Annex building Thursday, January 31.

According to the Kaufman County District Attorney's web site, McLelland attended Navarro Junior College and then transferred to the University of Texas. He spent 23 years in the United States Army. McLelland and his wife have two daughters and three sons. They had been married for 17 years.

We are working to get the latest details and will have those details posted on KLTV.com
