A more direct approach would be to contact the Clerk of the Criminal Court in the County where the Murder occurred. A few questions should reveal who was prosecuted for killing your Brother. There may be little information available in the Court Records, but once you find the File, read the...Read more »

Yes, it is legal. The county prosecutor is not a neutral arbitrator. She is a state employee and her job is to protect the "peace and dignity of the State of Texas" against criminals.
