NASHVILLE (AP) – A group that tracks violence across the nation says Tennessee is now third in the nation in women killed by men.

The Tennessean cited a report by the Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C., in reporting there were at least 62 such Tennessee cases in 2010 – the latest year tabulated.

Gov. Bill Haslam had cited an earlier report from the group to bolster his call for mandatory jail time for a second offense of domestic assault. At the time, the state ranked fifth nationally.

Noting that Tennessee has been in the top 10 with one exception in the last decade, Kristen Rand of the center said being consistently high on the list means officials need to identify what can be effective prevention strategies.
