Tina's Story

Tina was murdered by her partner in 2017.

Her partner had subjected her to years of abuse and controlling behaviour. He was jailed for life for a minimum of 24 years for her murder.

Tina’s sister Mandy wants to help other families avoid losing a loved one through domestic abuse.

We would like to thank Mandy for making an awareness-raising film to help other families.
