NV still ranked 1st, second year in a row

In conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month being right around the corner the Violence Policy Center  in Washington D.C. released stats showing that NV, for the second year in a row, is ranked number one in the nation for the most women killed by men.

This is not a contest that any state wishes to win! 

The stats were published in the report:  When Men Murder Women: An Analysis of 2006 Homicide Data

This is an annual report that details the female homicides where there is one female victim and one male offender per case.  The information is taken from an unpublished FBI report.
