A new study shows Kentucky is among the top 10 states in the nation where women are murdered by men. Women in intimate partner relationships are especially vulnerable.
The report called “When Men Murder Women” is by the nonprofit Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C. and uses data from the FBI.
The report says having guns in the home can allow domestic violence to escalate to murder. And women are much more likely to be a victim at home than in any other place.
