WORTHAM, Texas (AP) - A slain Texas prosecutor and his wife are to be laid to rest in the small town where he grew up in the central part of the state.

The funeral for Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, is set for this morning in Wortham. The town of about 1,000 residents is about 75 miles south of Dallas.

The Honor Network says dozens of law enforcement representatives from across the country and other nations are expected at the First Baptist Church of Wortham and graveside 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 is offered for information leading to the killer's conviction.
