single subject , plural verb ?
After his family is murdered or after his family are murdered. Which is correct ?
It seems to be a section/ piece of some sentence.
As Oxford online dictionary says, family can be used as both plural and singular.
In that case, it depends on the rest of your sentence. If the word family is used as singular, 'is' is proper.
