Living Beyond the Murder of a Loved One: Information for Families and Others Affected by Homicide
This handbook has information on what resources are available to assist families and others who have been affected by homicide. It looks at what families may experience, from "After the police leave...what happens now?" to accessing financial assistance, including compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board and other sources of financial help. It also covers the criminal justice process, from the investigation, to the trial, sentencing, parole, and what happens with youth offenders. The last section includes information on the Victims' Bill of Rights, a glossary, and who to contact.
