    WA - Army officer arrested for threating wife, commander


    A U.S. Army officer was arrested Monday by the Pierce County Sheriff's Department for threatening to have his wife and his commanding officer killed.

    Lt. Col. Robert Underwood was charged with three counts of felony harrassment and is being held in Pierce County Jail. Underwood is stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

    Serena Kiptoo, identified in court documents as Underwood's girlfriend, told police that Underwood had said he had paid a hit man $150,000 to kill his wife and his boss, Lt. Col. Shawn Reed.

    Reed told police he had ordered that Underwood undergo an involuntary evaluation.

    A Pierce County Sherrif's Department spokesman said Underwood had also made threats to blow up the state capitol in Olympia.

    Also from the link above:

    Kiptoo also told police she had seen a nude photo of Underwood's daughter on his laptop and that he threatened her when she confronted him about it.

    Underwood has had multiple deployments to Iraq, the court documents said, but has not been diagnosed with PTSD.

    "However," the probable cause document said, when Underwood "was a young child he witnessed his mother kill his two siblings. She also shot the defendant multiple times and left him for dead."
