April 12, 2012
Working Together to End Domestic Violence Homicide in Maine
AUGUSTA – Attorney General William J. Schneider announced that the Maine Domestic Abuse Homicide Review Panel’s 9th biennial report was made available to the public at a press conference today. Joining the attorney general were Governor LePage, Commissioner Morris of the Maine Department of Public Safety, Colonel Williams of the State Police, and Assistant Attorney General Lisa Marchese, chair of the panel.
The report is the product of many dedicated individuals who examined 13 cases of domestic violence homicide that occurred in Maine between March 2008 and July 2011. Their review of the circumstances surrounding these cases clarified the need to recognize the signs of domestic violence and to take the steps necessary to ensure the safety of victims, their families and the general public.
Among the panel’s observations and recommendations are several key themes that emerged from the homicide cases reviewed.
