HARTFORD, Connecticut — The Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence is set to release its annual review of domestic violence fatalities and make public policy recommendations.
Since 2008, 188 people in the state have died as the result of intimate partner violence. That includes seven women and four men killed in 2012.
Statistics from 2013 will be discussed during a news conference on Tuesday at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. Michael Lawlor, the state's undersecretary for criminal justice policy and planning at the Office of Policy and Management is scheduled to discuss efforts being made to address domestic violence in Connecticut.
Also, a friend of Kyla Ryng, a Bristol woman killed in June by her husband in an apparent murder-suicide, will discuss the importance of learning the signs of abuse.
