LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Yathomas Riley will go on trial for the murder of his wife Lisa, on June 20 in Leesburg. The judge set the deadline for attorney motions for Friday, May 20. There will be a hearing on any motions on Wednesday, June 1

Riley, facing murder charges stemming from his wife Lisa Riley's death last July, will remain behind bars, until the trial starts.  

He originally told authorities that his wife killed herself, but authorities took him into custody on a bond revocation,  and immediately started investigating.

Lisa Riley's body was found in their home, after she had been shot in the head.

In May of 2015, Riley was arrested for shooting at rafters floating on a river. The charge was initially a misdemeanor gun charge, but they were just upgraded to felony aggravated assault.

Florida prosecutors dropped attempted murder charges against Riley in 2012, after his then-girlfriend was shot. Riley had also claimed that that woman shot herself.
