WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Prosecutors here in West Michigan and across the country are showing their support for a fellow prosecutor and his wife who were shot and killed in Texas.
They will be wearing black for two days.
Last Saturday Kauffman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were found shot to death inside their home.
Two months earlier an assistant DA for the same office was also gunned down.
"These are heinous crimes and they've affected not just Texans but people across the country who respect the rule of law. Because these truly are direct attacks on the core of our civil society," said Governor Rick Perry.
Texas Governor Rick Perry is offering a $200,000 reward to help find the couples' killer.
It's still unclear if the two shootings are related.
