ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence is holding its 23rd annual memorial service.

The event scheduled for Monday night in Annapolis will remember 38 people who died as a result of domestic violence in Maryland between July 2009 and June 2010. The group includes 18 women, 18 men and two children.
