MESQUITE, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Texas community and law enforcement officers from around the world gathered Thursday at a public memorial for a murdered District Attorney and his wife.
Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia were found shot dead inside their home last Saturday.
Investigators are still searching for their killer.
Meanwhile, police have investigated at least six other threats, including one against a Kaufman County judge, since their murders.
To honor their slain colleagues and recognize the danger these jobs pose, prosecutors and district attorneys across America, including here in West Michigan, are dressing in black for the next two days.
Some say it's the least they can do to mark the sacrifices McLelland and his wife made to the cause of justice.
Funeral services for McLelland and his wife are set for Friday at 10:00 a.m. in Texas.
