A new report is out from a group in Washington, DC that looks at the rate of violence against women in the US.  According to the report, Alaska ranked first in the nation in the rate of women murdered by men. 

The Violence Policy Center released its annual report “When Men Murder Women: An Analysis of 2012 Homicide Data.”  In the past 10 years, Alaska ranked in the top ten highest murder rates against women four other times.
