A.In this scenario, the mom can be considered an accomplice because of 2 reasons. One is that she has hate towards Carol so that gives her a reason for why she would want harm to come to her and also the lack of concern of what her son said about putting her to sleepand disposing of the body. Also, she said, “be for the best”. In the bible, it mentions not reporting acts of violence in which you will be damned by the Lord. “When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood” Ezekiel 33:8. Because of the tone of voice the son used it is malice behind those words and he is looking to take action. Because in the bible it says, “But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defiles them” Matthew 15:18.In Ezekiel 33, God explains to Ezekiel the concept of a watchman.The illustration is that of someone watching for approaching enemies. If this watchman notifies the people of approaching enemies, anyone who dies does so at their fault. After all, they were warned. But if the watchman does not warn the people, then the people’s blood is on the hands of the watchman. We can justify that the mother can be held in court as an accessory to the crime that her son committed by failure to report the threat that her son said about Carol.Like all other sins, murder is generated in a person's inner being. Interestingly, the first things Jesus mentions as emanating from the heart are evil thoughts followed by murder. As the evil gets germinate and grow, they begin a process that ultimately produces murder. Jesus shows that the character of our thoughts becomes the character of our conduct. A witness is a person who saw or heard the crime take place or may have important information about the crime or the defendant. Both the defense and the prosecutor can call witnesses to testify or tell what they know about the situation.
