Natalie Esack's family have made no complaint about the way Kent Police handled their daughter's case. She was stabbed to death by her estranged husband, and former police detective, Ivan Esack after years of abuse.
However, one leading domestic violence charity believes Natalie's repeated contact with police - four times she told them about her husband's abuse - warranted a stronger response.
Earlier Sangeeta spoke to Julia Dwyer from Refuge and started by asking her what more police could have done.
Former police detective Ivan Esack was today jailed for life for the brutal murder of his estranged wife - and must serve a minimum term of 28 years.

It's emerged that Natalie contacted police about her threatening husband four times between 2009 and a month before the murder.
Her family have praised the force but a leading domestic abuse charity says Kent Police could and should have done more to protect her.
Derek Johnson reports and speaks Jim Wilkinson, Natalie's father, Natalie's boyfriend Justin Khadaroo and Det Ch Insp Paul Fotheringham.
