LAS VEGAS — A former Las Vegas prosecutor who died the day her judge-boyfriend was found to have committed judicial misconduct for failing to disclose their relationship is being ruled an accident.

Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy said Tuesday that Lisa Ann Willardson died Dec. 26 of a lethal combination of prescription medications.

Murphy says that individually, they weren't overdoses.

Murphy says the drugs included a sedative, an anti-anxiety medication, an anti-depressant and a sleep aid.

Suspended Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones reported finding Willardson's body at her Henderson home just hours after the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline faulted Jones for presiding over her cases while they dated.

Jones was suspended for three months without pay.

He faces separate federal charges in what prosecutors call a $3 million investment fraud.
