This week: homicide, what is it, how many variations of killing is there? First, understand there is a difference between homicide, murder and manslaughter, these words aren’t interchangeable.
Homicide: Homicide is the killing of one person by another, having made a decision or committed an action to bring about another person’s death, whether accidental or deliberate.
Homicide is split into two categories; justifiable and criminal homicide; justifiable homicide includes self-defence, killing in war, euthanasia and capital punishment, where the death isn’t premeditated by criminal intent. Where-as criminal homicide is divided into two distinct categories, murder and manslaughter.
Murder is the unlawful killing of another person with premeditation (a plan to kill) and their actions have criminal intent. Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of another person without premeditation, but the perpetrators actions are intended to cause serious harm or injury to the other person, but not death, but results in the death of another.
But what other types of killing is there.
