On the 25th November 2001 Penny was brutally murdered. The victim of domestic violence, she was punched, kicked and stamped on by her partner. She received 123 injuries including 18 broken ribs, her liver, spleen and lungs were pierced. Penny was 31 years old.
Penny's story was not unique, it followed a pattern that is repeated daily worldwide. This is her story, told by me, her mother, and the subsequent action I am taking to advise victims of domestic violence about the choices open to them
