Harriet,
For you attention below are the statistics from Women's Aid for how many Women are murdered by there partner's and it is 2 per week not 2 per year


Key statistics: Did you know that domestic violence kills over two women per week?

What is domestic violence?
In Women's Aid's view domestic violence is physical, sexual, psychological or financial violence that takes place within an intimate or family-type relationship and that forms a pattern of coercive and controlling behaviour.

How common is domestic violence?
1 in 4 women experience domestic vioelnce in their lifetime and between 1 in 8 to 1 in 10 women experience it annually. Less than half of all incidents are reported to the Police, but they still receive one domestic violence call every minute in the UK.
