Interpersonal violence.
Summary This study presents research unique in its breadth, depth, and detail and uses both quantitative and qualitative evidence from casefiles and interviews with men convicted of murder. The focus is on three types of murder of women by men - intimate partner murder, sexual murder, and the murder of older women. Each type is examined separately, addressing the knowledge, the murder event, and the lifecourse of the perpetrators. The findings are used to explore the context and circumstances of the murder event and to describe the lifecourse of the perpetrators from childhood to adulthood and into prison
