10-1-13 domestic violence homicides

The number of domestic violence homicides in Wisconsin increased from 2011 to 2012.  A report released by the group End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin shows that in 2011 there were 31 domestic violence homicide incidents resulting in 37 deaths including two incidents in Fond du Lac.  In 2012  38 domestic violence homicide incidents resulted in 52 deaths.  End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin policy coordinator Tony Gibart says the report shows perpetrators of domestic violence homicides were overwhelmingly male.  In 2012, close to one quarter of all domestic violence homicide victims were children killed by their father or other adult male household member.
