MPs who have been killed in office

Sir David Amess is the latest member of the House of Commons to be killed in office. Jo Cox was murdered in her constituency by far-right extremist Thomas Mair on June 16 2016. The 41-year-old mother of two had been the Labour MP for Batley and Spen for just over a year when she was shot and stabbed by Mair – a social recluse – in Birstall, in her West Yorkshire constituency.
