LAS VEGAS (AP) — An attorney says a former Las Vegas prosecutor was found dead in her Henderson home Thursday evening, just hours after a state panel ruled against her boyfriend, a judge, for presiding over cases while they were dating.

Attorney James Jimmerson says Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones found Lisa Willardson in the bathroom of her home after he returned from a trip to Utah with his children.

The cause of her death is not expected to be determined until toxicology tests are complete.

Jimmerson said Jones went to Willardson's home to check on her after his text messages went unanswered.

Willardson's death came the same day the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline handed down a ruling critical of Jones, saying there was "clear and convincing evidence" to prove eight of 12 misconduct charges.
