The Violence Policy Center released its annual report analyzing homicide data Wednesday. The organization found that in Idaho, 14 females were murdered by males in 2011. That translates to a rate of 1.77 per every 100,000, higher than the national average of 1.17 per 100,000.
Of the Idaho women who were homicide victims that year, all but two were over the age of 18, and all but one of them was killed by someone they knew.
The Violence Policy Center said South Carolina had the highest rate of females killed by males at 2.54 per 100,000.
