Texas authorities arrested and charged a woman with capital murder in connection to the killings of a district attorney, his wife, and an assistant district attorney, officials announced Wednesday.

Information about the arrest of Kim Williams, the wife of a former judge who is also implicated in the investigation, was originally leaked by an anonymous source. Mrs. Williams was booked at 3 a.m. at Kaufman County Jail and is being held on a $10 million bond, an officer told the Associated Press early Wednesday. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation of the shootings of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia last month and Assistant District Attorney Mark Hesse in January.

In a press conference Wednesday, Lt. Justin Lewis of the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the that Williams is charged with three murders and being held on bail, but he offered no further details and took no questions.
