Strangulation a serious concern 
Big Island prosecutors dealt with what they consider an alarming number of domestic strangulation cases last year, more than 50. A study published in the October 2008 Journal of Emergency Medicine by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing found victims of nonfatal strangulation by an intimate partner were seven times more likely to become a homicide victim at a later point in time. Tribune-Herald.
