Notes

Various definitions exist of the term parricide.

Clemency: Doing Justice to Incarcerated Battered Children (10962 words)
Yet the realities of parricide are far more complicated then they appear to the casual observer, and, despite the wide publicity such incidents typically receive, parricides actually represent only a small percentage of the total homicides reported in the United States each year.
Without the admission of battered child syndrome evidence, a parricide defendant has little hope of demonstrating to a jury that his or her actions were in self-defense.
Due to the battered child's heightened perception of the abuser's patterns of behavior, he or she may have seen the abuser's actions as the prelude to a violent attack, and feared for his or her life due to the imminent threat the abuser seemed to pose.
