WORTHAM — A slain prosecutor and his wife were laid to rest in the small Central Texas town where he grew up.

Hundreds attended the funeral and burial of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, 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 attended the service at First Baptist Church of Wortham and burial at 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.
