                 Oklahoma ranks No. 3 in number of women killed by men

Oklahoma is ranked No. 3 in the nation for the number of women killed by men, according to a recent report from the Violence Policy Center.

This is a startling statistic — and a jump in the state’s previous ranking.

According to the report, the overwhelming majority of the women in Oklahoma who were killed — 97 percent — knew the person who killed them. In fact, 61 percent of the women were wives, common-law wives, ex-wives or girlfriends of the offenders.

Additionally from the report:

  • 38 females were murdered by males in Oklahoma in 2011
  • The homicide rate among females murdered by males in Oklahoma was 1.99 per 100,000 in 2011
  • AGE: For homicides in which the age of the victim was reported (36 homicides), 4 female homicide victims (11 percent) were less than 18 years old and 3 victims (8 percent) was 65 years of age or older. The average age was 40 years old.
  • RACE: Out of 38 female homicide victims, one was Asian or Pacific Islander, one was American Indian or Alaskan Native, nine were black and 27 were white.
  • MOST COMMON WEAPON: For homicides in which the weapon used could be identified, 59 percent of female victims (20 out of 34) were shot and killed with guns. Of these, 90 percent (18 victims) were killed with handguns. There were five females killed with knives or other cutting instruments, and seven females killed by bodily force.
  • RELATIONSHIP: For homicides in which the victim to offender relationship could be identified, 97 percent of female victims (36 out of 37) were murdered by someone they knew. One female victim was killed by a stranger.
  • Of the victims who knew their offenders, 61 percent (22 victims) were wives, common-law wives, ex-wives, or girlfriends of the offenders. Among the female intimates who were murdered, 73 percent (16 victims) were killed with guns; 88 percent of these (14 victims) were shot and killed with handguns.
  • CIRCUMSTANCE: For homicides in which the circumstances could be identified, 84 percent (31 out of 37) were not related to the commission of any other felony. Of these, 42 percent (13 homicides) involved arguments between the victim and the offender.
