Former prosecutor found dead in her Henderson home

Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- New details have been released on the death of a former local prosecutor involved in a judicial discipline case.

According to the lawyer representing Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones, Jones himself found 45-year-old Lisa Ann Willardson dead in her home inside the Tuscany Village Community in Henderson.

He found her Thursday evening after he returned from a skiing trip in Utah.

Jones found her body two days after the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline ruled Jones had committed misconduct by presiding over her cases while in a relationship with her.

Jones was suspended with pay from the bench last November after being indicted by a federal grand jury on fraud charges.

The cause and manner of death for Willardson have not been released.

Foul play is not suspected.
