AUSTIN (Kiii News) -

Governor Rick Perry issued a directive that all flags be lowered to half staff on Thursday to honor District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia.

Both the district attorney and his wife were brutally murdered outside of Dallas.

The governor asks all Texans to remember the McLellands and their service to the state. The couple lived in Corpus Christi back in the early 70s.
