WORTHAM, Texas (AP) — A slain prosecutor and his wife are to be laid to rest in the small Central Texas town where he grew up.

The funeral for Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, is set for 10 a.m. Friday 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 has been offered for information leading to the killer's conviction.
