Abstract

Extract:

Domestic homicide occurs when one family member, household member, or intimate kills another. It is often the result of accumulated as opposed to situational rage, and therefore it is commonly associated with long-term fighting abuse, or betrayal. It also frequently occurs in associated with drug and alcohol use. Consequently, it involves some of the more violent and aberrant behaviors that criminal profilers will need to examine.
