Clip: 12/10/2018 | 6m 51s

A connection has long been established between domestic violence and murder. But a new report by The Washington Post uncovers just how close that link is: nearly half of women who were murdered in the past decade were killed by a current or former partner. Katie Zezima, the story’s lead reporter, joins John Yang to discuss the disturbing data and new efforts to intervene before homicide occurs.
