By Dinesh Ramde Associated Press MILWAUKEE - Gov. Scott Walker signed three bills Wednesday aimed at strengthening domestic-violence laws, including one measure proposed after a man fatally shot his estranged wife in 2012 while she was working at a Brookfield spa. The new laws mandate that police track incidents when no arrests are made during a domestic-disturbance call and that they inform abuse victims of their options.
