BORGES, Lucienne Martins; LODETTI, Mariá Boeira; TRIDAPALLI, Ana Laura  and  MACHADO, Gustavo da Silva. Partner homicide in the greater São Paulo and greater Florianópolis: news published in newspapers. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp. 227-240. ISSN 1983-8220.

Partner Homicide is the adopted term to the homicide gesture between people within a current or former relationship. There is not any methodical survey of Conjugal Homicide in Brazil, making journalistic sources the most reliable data. This article aims a discussion on Conjugal Homicide taking reported cases in two widely spread newspapers (O Estado de São Paulo e Diário Catarinense) in a ten-year span (2000-2010). A total of 34 cases in Greater Florianópolis and 110 cases in Greater São Paulo were found. When comparing the registered cases, there was a greater proportional incidence in the Greater Florianópolis. It was concluded by the surveyed cases that were a prevalence of male homicide gesture; precursor symptons; couple's split impact and the presence of intimate terrorism or domestic violence.

Keywords : Partner homicide; Conjugal homicide; Passional crime; Domestic violence; Documentary research.
