Surge in demand for help from victims of domestic violence -

View in ParlViewView other Segments

The latest shocking murder suicide has prompted a surge in calls for help from women frightened they'll face the same fate.

A Gold Coast woman was murdered last week by her estranged husband while he was on bail on domestic violence charges.

The increased demand for help comes as the Women's Legal Service is about to face funding cuts.
