Governor Troubled by Report Guard Mishandled Domestic Case

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A spokeswoman for Gov. Mike Pence says he's troubled by allegations that the Indiana National Guard mishandled a domestic violence case and will review a Pentagon report on the matter.
Spokeswoman Christy Denault says Pence “will carefully review the Department of the Army Inspector General's report to determine how the Indiana National Guard can best address such allegations in the future.'' Pence acts as the guard's commander in chief.
The Indianapolis Star reports the ex-wife of a top Guard attorney accused him of beating her and that she told Adjutant General Martin Umbarger about the abuse in 2009, or nearly three years before Umbarger acknowledges he became aware of the accusation. The Star reports Umbarger didn't launch a formal investigation of the matter until 18 months after that.
