Bob Jay “B.J.” Cole has waived his right to a parole hearing, said Steve Hayes, Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles director of communications.

Cole, who turned himself in to Walker County authorities June 24, violated his parole by cutting his ankle monitor and changing his residence without advance permission, Hayes said.

The board will review Cole’s case in six months, as long as he is not convicted of a new offense, Hayes said.

Cole's wife was found dead on June 18. The couple had been married for eight day. Her body was discover about 115 feet off a road just outside LaFayette city limits. Her death remains under investigation.
