What is the definition of domestic violence in Colorado?

Do you know the legal definition of the term "domestic violence" in the state of Colorado?

Woman accused of domestic violence after massive blaze

We hear a lot about the role of social media in the law today, and a recent case out of Colorado proves that Facebook posts can sometimes incite strange behavior. Officials in Centennial say that a Facebook update may be to blame for a giant apartment fire in June. That blaze injured eight people and caused about $1.5 million in damages at a local apartment complex. Investigators say the fire may be traced back to a domestic violence situation that was exacerbated by a social media post. The defendant is facing charges of attempted murder and domestic violence.
