In 2003, Julia Pemberton and her son, William, were murdered by her estranged husband. This crime revealed a disturbing lack of preparedness on the part of the police and resulted in sustained campaigning for accountability on the part of Julia’s family. This case, which will be discussed in more detail later in this chapter, formed the main stimulus for the adoption of Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) within the United Kingdom. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the prevalence and nature of domestic homicide in the United Kingdom, and the systems in place to respond to domestic abuse. We also explore the development and operation of DHRs, including a summary of emergent themes, and conclude by sketching potential directions for their improvement.
