Statistics on Domestic Violence Deaths In Maryland

June 29, 2010

The Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV) released a report on individuals who died as a result of domestic violence during FY 2009 in Maryland.  The report gives us information on who the victims were, their relationship to the offender, their age range, how they were killed, and where in Maryland this took place.

Baltimore County had the highest number of deaths as a result of domestic violence, with 12. Baltimore City had 10 deaths, and Price George’s County had 8.

These deaths grimly reveal the challenge that the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County and other domestic violence agencies face as they attempt, with diminished funding and growing demand for services, in our efforts to intervene and provide safety for the families of Baltimore County.
