Funeral service concludes for slain Texas DA, wife

WORTHAM, Texas (AP) — A funeral service has concluded for a slain prosecutor and his wife who are being laid to rest in the small Central Texas town where he grew up.

The funeral for Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, was held Friday in Wortham. The town of some 1,000 residents is about 75 miles south of Dallas.

Dozens of law enforcement representatives from across the country and beyond were among the capacity crowd at First Baptist Church of Wortham. A funeral procession with sirens is moving toward Wortham Cemetery.

The McLellands were found shot to death Saturday in their house near Forney, about 20 miles east of Dallas. No arrests have been made, but a $200,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the killer's conviction.
