Differences between feminicides preceded and not preceded by the separation of the couple


English, Spanish



Knowledge of the characteristics of the different types of feminicide can contribute to improving prevention strategies in the field of violence against women. Based on the analysis of 307 judgments in Spain for femicides, consumed or attempted, the differences between 146 feminicide preceded (FI-SE) and 161 not preceded by separation from the couple (FI-NOSE) were studied. The results show that the perpetrators of FI-SE exercise more types of violence, are more blind and experience more sources of stress in the year preceding the crime. Harassment increases four times the probability of FI-SE occurring, while discussion between partners without prior violence decreases the likelihood of FI-SE occurring. However, those who commit FI-NOSE have a higher history of depression and psychotic disorders. The theoretical and practical implications are described
