Physical Description

Abstract: Filicide is a term used to denote the killing of one's child. There are subcategories within filicide that pertain to the child's age at the time of death, which include neonaticide - when the child does not survive the first 24 hours of life - and infanticide - also referred to as infant homicide, which takes place when the victim is under one year old at the time of death. There are multiple typologies of filicide including paternal and psychotic filicide. In paternal filicide the father is the perpetrator and in psychotic filicide the perpetrator suffers from psychological issues that might result in an episode where the child is murdered. The first typology was based exclusively on maternal filicide because this crime has been historically recognized by predominantly female perpetrators.
