Domestic Homicide Review
Multi-agency Domestic Homicide Reviews were established on a statutory basis under section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 which came into force on 13th April 2011. A Domestic Homicide Review is a review of the circumstances in which the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by:
- A person to whom s/he was related or with whom s/he was or had been in an intimate personal relationship, or
- A member of the same household as him/herself, held with a view to identifying the lessons to be learnt from the death.
