LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline has suspended family court Judge Steven Jones without pay for three months.

The embattled judge was found to have violated judicial ethics in a case involving his now-deceased girlfriend Lisa Willardson.

Her death came the same day that the commission found the judge broke ethical rules because he presided over cases handled by Willardson, a former prosecutor, while the pair were dating.

She was found dead in her home the day after Christmas. The Clark County Coroner has yet to release her cause of death.
