|English term or phrase: Murder Suicide|
|I know it is Mord und Selbstmord, but is there a specific term that describes this (just one word???) Doing subtitles and am limited with the space, any suggestions welcome, thanks|
|Mord und Selbstmord|
As far as I know, there is no nicely succinct composite term in German, so I'd use "Mord und Selbstmord" as I found in a few references.
