Birmingham City Council's social services is being investigated after a mother-of three they were working with was fatally stabbed by her partner.
Natasha Trevis was killed in a taxi in the Northfield area in Birmingham in August by Junior Saleem Oakes.
He was given a life sentence at Birmingham Crown court on Monday. The couple had three children together but were separated at the time of the stabbing.
It was revealed in court that a social worker working with the family let slip to Oakes that Natasha had decided to abort his fourth child.
A few days later he attacked and killed his partner.
Birmingham City Council has today confirmed an investigation into its social services department is taking place.
