Slain lawyer's wife released on bond


The wife charged in the death of her estranged husband has been released from jail on bond.

News 2 has confirmed Kelley Cannon posted bail at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

James Cannon, a Nashville attorney and local businessman, was found strangled to death in an upstairs closet of his Bowling Avenue home on the morning on June 23.

Kelley Cannon, 41, was arrested in July and charged with his murder.

Detectives testified there was visible trauma to James Cannon's neck and allege he was strangled with an electrical cord ripped from a phone adaptor.

Testimony also revealed Kelley Cannon was caught on surveillance video stealing a box of latex gloves from a Walgreen's the night before James Cannon's body was found.

Additionally, investigators found a piece of a latex glove with James Cannon's blood on the outside and Kelley Cannon's DNA on the inside in the room where his body was discovered.

At the time of the murder, an order of protection was in effect that prohibited Kelley Cannon from coming around her husband or children. 

Earlier this week, a judge dismissed an assault charge and charges that she violated an order of protection.
