LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Lauderdale County judge revoked bond for the man accused of killing a volunteer coach at Deshler High School.

Investigators said Jeremy Williams killed Brioni ‘Bree' Rutland last week and dumped his body into the Tennessee River. Court documents state that he was killed following a fight over a gambling debt.

District Attorney Chris Connolly said Williams' bond was revoked for a crime he committed last year.

Florence Police arrested Williams for domestic violence by strangulation in December 2012. Investigators said a neighbor witnessed the attack. The victim had marks around her neck, facial bruises and a busted lip.

Jeremy Williams entered into a trial diversion program which deferred his charge. The DA has since filed a motion stating violating any criminal offense is against the program rules. The DA wants the court to accept Williams' guilty plea and set the domestic violence case for sentencing.

In the meantime, investigators are still working to piece together exactly what happened the night Rutland was killed.

Rutland's funeral is set for Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Deshler High School gymnasium. He will be buried at the Shoals Memorial Garden in Tuscumbia.
