Domestic Violence Real in Northern Wisconsin
A new report says 89 deaths in Wisconsin were the result of domestic violence in the past two years. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. WXPR News Director Ken Krall spoke with Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault's Shellie Holmes about the report from the statewide advocacy group End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin. She says the report is numbers, but the people involved are real as are the impacts.
