A grieving daughter whose mum was murdered in her own home wants to encourage more women to leave their violent and abusive partners.
Carmel Black, 33, from Nottingham, has never spoken out publicly about what happened to her in 1999 when her mum, Pearl Black, 36, was killed in her Bramcote home.
But the Experian worker said she wants to break the domestic abuse taboo in the hope more women will find the courage to leave nasty relationships.
She said the impact domestic violence has on children - she was 11 at the time of her mum's death - continues into their adult life and makes them question relationships they have in the future.
