Intimate vs. Non-Intimate Partner Homicide: Differences in Legal, Situational, Clinical and Personal Characteristics

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Despite a modest decline in recent years in the U.S., women’s risk of homicide by an intimate partner continues to be much higher than the risk of homicide by any other type of assailant. Extensive research has focused on identifying risk factors for intimate partner homicide; however, these studies are limited by methodological issues such as narrow comparison groups and limited data (e.g. on relationship type and offender characteristics). Hence, our understanding of what differentiates intimate homicide from non-intimate homicide remains incomplete. We build off a prior study conducted in Great Britain that compared men convicted of murdering an intimate partner to men convicted of killing another male. Using an integrated dataset of multiple sources with a representative sample of 682 persons convicted of homicide in the State of Indiana between 1990 and 2002, we compared legal, situational, clinical, and personal characteristics of men convicted of killing an intimate partner to those of men convicted of killing any non-intimate (i.e. non-spousal family member, acquaintance, or stranger). Bivariate analyses (chi-square and odds ratios) revealed several differences between the two groups. Results are placed in the context of prior research and implications for risk assessment and intimate partner violence interventions are presented.
