Manhunt for suspect in Texas D.A. death two months after assistant D.A. was killed – George Howell reports


Kaufman County, Texas (CNN) - Frayed nerves and a palpable tension cloak this quiet Texas county as half a dozen agencies hunt for the killer or killers bent on taking out top criminal justice officials.
