SB 976 - This act creates a process for establishing and operating domestic violence fatality review panels after instances of homicide which have been determined to be related to domestic violence. These panels are organized by the prosecuting or circuit attorney of the jurisdiction in which the homicide occurred, and consist of members described in the act.
It is the duty of the panel to investigate homicides related to domestic violence and issue a public report. The work product of the panel, other than the public report to be issued, is not public record and is not admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings.
This act is similar to SB 511 (2017).
