A fairly common type of murder, usually involving people with some kind of relationship. Examples include parent and children, lovers/spouses, but also sometimes employee and boss. Usually it is the parent/ employee / male partner initiating the killing, but certainly not always. Sometimes the murder and suicide is planned, sometimes the suicide comes with realization of the act. Sometimes, as in the case of doomed lovers or elderly couples, it was mutually agreed upon.
