Over 50% of female Dutch murder victims were killed by their partners

From 2010 to 2014, seven hundred and seventy-seven people met their deaths through violence.  Two thirds of the victims were men.  More than half of the women who were murdered in the past four years were killed by their partners or former partners.  In more than 90% of the cases, this resulted from domestic circumstances or jealousy.  Most of the women were strangled or stabbed.
