More than half the homicides in Maine over the past two years have been linked to domestic violence, according to a report released Thursday.
The Maine Domestic Abuse Homicide Review Panel says that trend has held steady over the past decade. Now Gov. Paul LePage, a survivor of domestic violence, is reiterating his call for increased surveillance of those accused abusers.
Attorney General Janet Mills read the names of the nine children killed in domestic homicides over the past two years.
“Korbyn, Jason, Noah, Lily, Sean, Duwayne, Destiny, Larry, Leo,” Mills read.
