DA killed 2 months after deputy gunned down

A Texas county district attorney and his wife were found dead in their home Saturday night two months after a prosecutor there was gunned down.

The Kaufman County Sheriff's Office is in the preliminary stages of investigating the slaying of DA Mike McLelland and his wife, according to Justin Lewis of the sheriff's office.

Lewis said he did not know if the deaths Saturday were connected to the killing of Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, who was shot and killed on his way to work in January.

According to the DA's office web site, McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, had two daughters and three sons. One son is a Dallas Police Officer.

Kenyans await court ruling on election

The Kenyan Supreme Court plans to issue its verdict Saturday on a legal challenge to Uhuru Kenyatta's win in the presidential election.

Kenyatta, the son of Kenya's founding leader, won the presidential poll this month with 50.07% of the vote.

His main rival, Prime Minister Raila Odinga, got 43.31% of the vote, and challenged the outcome in court, saying it was flawed and marred by technical problems.
