1. Title page. 2. Homicide, defined by the Murphy Law Office, is the killing of one person by another (Murphy Law Office, 2016). Homicide can happen in all types of situations, such as in war, at a medical setting, or even in an accident. Basically, homicide can be with or without malice aforethought. Homicides with malice aforethought are considered as murder. Murder can be divided into first-degree murder and second-degree murder (Bartol, & Barol, 2012)., which will be elaborated in later slides. Those without malice aforethought are categorized as non-negligent manslaughter, which means that the person has no intention to kill but result in death in another person (Bartol, & Barol, 2012).

This type of murder is the unlawful killing of one human being by another with malice aforethought, either expressed or implied. Malice aforethought means to have the thought of planning the killing ahead of time (Bartol, & Barol, 2012). In order to be qualitied as a first degree murder, this killing has to meet three criteria. These three criteria include intent, deliberation, and premeditation (Halt.org, 2019). All three criteria have to be met. Intent makes sure the goal is to kill; someone has to die. However, killing the wrong person while intended to kill another person also meets the standard of “intent” criterion. The second and third criteria go together, meaning that the killing is planned.
