Meeting set for part of Haley's domestic violence panel

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A subset of Gov. Nikki Haley's task force on domestic violence is meeting this week.

The Criminal Justice Division of the Governor's Domestic Violence Task Force is having a meeting on Thursday at the South Carolina Sheriff's Association's headquarters in Columbia.

Organizers say members of working groups will report their findings and talk about what their next steps are.

South Carolina has long ranked among the nation's worst in violence against women.

Haley created the task force in January by executive order. Its recommendations are due by the end of the year.
