HARTFORD, Conn. - A former Navy submarine commander has been found in violation of the military's criminal code for having an affair with a woman and faking his own death to end the relationship.
A Navy spokeswoman says Cmdr. Michael P. Ward II has received a letter of reprimand for adultery and other violations.
Documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act request say Ward sent his mistress an email from a fictitious co-worker named Bob in July to fake his death.
Last month Ward was dismissed as commanding officer of the USS Pittsburgh. He had taken command of the Connecticut-based attack submarine a week earlier.
He has not responded to requests for comment.
