KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) — Authorities investigating the murders of a Texas prosecutor and his wife believe a former county official sent a threatening email to law officers three days after the killings.

The Kaufman County sheriff released a probable cause affidavit Monday that shows authorities traced the threat to the personal computer of former Justice of the Peace Eric Lyle Williams. The prosecutor’s office handled a theft case against Williams that resulted in him losing his job.

Authorities say the email implied that if authorities didn’t respond to various demands, there’d be another attack.

Williams is being held on $3 million bond on a charge of making a terroristic threat.

A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity says at least 20 weapons found in Williams’ storage locker are being tested.
