LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline on Monday handed down its decision on an embattled family court judge.

Judge Steve Jones has been suspended for three months without pay.

The punishment is for his violating ethics rules by having a romantic relationship with prosecutor Lisa Willardson while he was presiding as judge over her cases.

Willardson was recently found dead in her home. Detectives found no sign of foul play.

They are waiting for toxicology reports to determine cause of death.
