Abstract

Few crimes evoke emotions stronger than those caused by the killing of a child. That an adult would deliberately cause the death of a child strikes many as inexplicable, especially in the case of filicide - killing one's own child. Yet homicide by family members is a common cause of death among children, especially if death due to neglect is included.
