Judicial records show 46-year-old Kim Williams was booked into the Kaufman County Jail at 2:58 a.m. Wednesday.

Former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace Eric Williams was jailed over the weekend after authorities executed several search warrants to investigate his home. He was jailed on a terroristic threat charge.

A search warrant obtained on Monday shows that Williams's home was being searched in connection with the murders of Kaufman County Prosecutor Mark Hasse, and Kaufman County DA Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia .

Mike and Cynthia McLelland were found shot to death in their Forney home on March 31, while Mark Hasse was gunned down while walking to the Kaufman County Courthouse on Jan. 31.
