An investigation into how the criminal justice system let down murdered Norwich mum Kerri McAuley will be published later today.
Ms McAuley, 32, was battered to death by her ex-partner Joe Storey in her home on Southalls Way north Norwich in January 2017.
Storey, from Murrells Court, was jailed for life with a minimum of 24 years in July 2017.
The judge described the killing as 'one of the worst cases of domestic violence that have come before these courts'.
He had a history of domestic abuse against ex-partners and Ms McAuley.
