   KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) -- Authorities say the wife of a former judge has confessed to being involved in the shooting deaths of a North Texas district attorney, his wife and an assistant prosecutor.
 
   Kim Lene Williams was arrested early Wednesday. Kaufman County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Justin Lewis says Williams is being charged in all three deaths. Lewis says she is being held on $10 million bond.
 
   According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Williams told investigators Tuesday that she was involved in the shootings of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife, Cynthia, and one of his prosecutors, Mark Hasse.
 
   The investigation has also focused on her husband, Eric Williams, whom McLelland and Hasse successfully prosecuted for theft.
 
   The McLellands were found dead March 30, two months after Hasse was slain.
