The recent murder of a teacher by her husband in a school parking lot in Brampton, Ont., is a textbook example of how domestic violence can spill into the workplace.

Aysegul Candir, a 47-year-old teacher at Bramalea Secondary School, was shot and killed in the parking lot of the school on Dec. 10.

The manner in which she was attacked is typical of most domestic violence murders in the workplace, according to new research out of the United States that looked at assaults in the U.S, Canada and the United Kingdom.
