What would you do if you learned that someone close to you was involved in domestic violence? In the most recent episode of Crime and Justice, detective duo Makena and Silas found themselves entangled in a sticky fix after one of their colleagues was found to be at the centre of a domestic violence case.

The show featured the life of Tina, a middle-aged mother and wife to Peter Matu, a high-ranking arrogant detective. She is constantly abused by her husband but continuously puts up with him since she feels intimidated to report it. He later beats her to death and lies about it.

When Makena and Silas probed the case, they were hell-bent on bringing their colleague to justice. However, their boss blocked their efforts, to prevent a scandal in his police force, leaving the detective duo in a tricky situation.

The tragic episode also brought to light how complacent society has become to domestic violence and how many women are trapped in abusive marriages and relationships.
