Wife of killer of Texas district attorney, wife, prosecutor to plead guilty to own role


KAUFMAN, Texas — A North Texas woman is expected to plead guilty to helping her husband gun down a district attorney, his wife and a top assistant in a revenge plot.

Kim Williams is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, weeks after her husband, Eric Williams, was sentenced to death for one of the three killings last year.

She testified during Eric Williams' sentencing hearing that she was a "willing participant" in the killings, driving the getaway car after the January 2013 shooting of prosecutor Mark Hasse and helping hide weapons after the March 2013 shootings of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia.

Kim Williams was indicted for three counts of capital murder. She testified this month that she hadn't received a deal for a lighter sentence.
