It is one of the faces of domestic violence. Jacqueline Sauvage, sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2014 for having killed her husband Norbert Marot who had beaten her for 47 years, died on July 23 at her home in La Selle-sur-le-Bied (Loiret).

Jacqueline Sauvage had aroused broad popular support, as well as that of many political figures or the world of entertainment.

François Hollande had granted him in December 2016 a gracious remission of the remainder of his prison sentence, without his conviction being erased.
