Maria Stubbings, of Chelmsford in Essex, was strangled with a dog lead in 2008 by Marc Chivers, who had already killed a previous girlfriend.
Her brother Manuel Fernandez has told ITV Daybreak that the family have been calling for a public inquiry.
He said: "This highlights issues around domestic violence with one police force but it's actually a national problem."
