At descriptive level, frequency, percentage and at inferential level, Pierson correlation coefficient and regression analysis were applied. The former suggests that most of the respondents are men aged, 40-50, while the latter pinpoints that there is a negative significant relationship between women position and the extent of murder provoked disputes.
