KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) — Neighbors and acquaintances say Kim Williams was a frail woman in poor health who rarely was seen in public. The Texas woman's arrest on capital murder charges left them shocked even as some expressed relief the case is moving forward.

Police arrested and charged Williams on Wednesday with allegedly plotting with her husband to kill two North Texas prosecutors out of revenge.

Police say Williams allegedly confessing to playing a role in the slayings of Kaufman County assistant prosecutor Mark Hasse in January and District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, last month.
