LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Yathomas Riley, the husband of Doctor Lisa Riley, whose body was found Friday in their Northampton home, remains in the Lee County jail. The GBI said today that she died of a gunshot to the head.

Lee County Judge Jim Thurman deferred his bond hearing until July 21st at 1:00. Riley will stay in jail at least until then.

ADA Lewis Lamb says six firearms were found in the home where Lisa Riley was found dead.   Riley says the guns are not his.

Riley called 911 and said his wife shot herself.    His bond was revoked on three counts of aggravated assault stemming from a domestic issue in June.

"At least one firearm in your home was apparently used to kill Lisa Riley, and your bond prohibited you from being in a home with firearms. Do you understand that? " asked Judge Thurman.

 Riley is not charged in his wife's death.

ESPN reported in 2012 that Riley spent two years in jail in Miami "after authorities decided not to proceed with a charge of attempted murder, stemming from a situation involving an on-again, off-again girlfriend named Koketia King."

    Ahead of heavy rain showers and winds projected for our area, the Georgia State Patrol said there's not as many travelers on the roads during this holiday weekend.  "So far I think this attributed to the weather and gas prices being so high, it seems that in our area of the state, traffic has been down some," said Trooper Christopher Jewell, GSP Post 40.
