A Norfolk MP wants the brutal murder of a Norwich mother to help shape new government policy on domestic abuse.
Kerri McAuley, 32, was killed by her on-off partner Joe Storey in January this year. He had broken every bone in her face in a violent assault at her Norwich home.
In June, the 27-year-old was jailed for a minimum of 24 years following a two-week trial. It took a jury just 45 minutes to convict him. Since then, Norwich North MP Chloe Smith has met with Miss McAuley's mother, Lesley, to discuss her case.
During Storey's trial, it was revealed he had a history of abusing his partners, had served jail terms for assault, and had been subject to a restraining order that prevented him contacting Miss McAuley.
Ms Smith has now spoken to crime and safeguarding minister Sarah Newton who is preparing a new bill on domestic abuse.
Miss McAuley's family has welcomed Ms Smith's attempts to ensure lessons are learned from her death.
