KAUFMAN — A second man has been arrested for allegedly threatening a public official as investigators probe the deaths of Kaufman County's district attorney, his wife and another prosecutor.

Authorities say Robert Allan Miller of Terrell was arrested Thursday and charged with making a terroristic threat. He is being held on $1 million bond in the county jail.

The 52-year-old Miller allegedly posted a threat against an assistant Kaufman County district attorney on a news website via Facebook.

Another Terrell man was charged with the same offense on Tuesday. Nick Morale allegedly threatened an unspecified official on the tip line set up by investigators probing the murders of DA Mike McLelland, his wife Cynthia and Assistant DA Mark Hasse.

Authorities say neither Miller nor Morale have been linked to the murders.
