    What is Homicide - First degree, Manslaughter 1

    The elements of a murder charge vary.

    The actual killing of a human being by another human being with malice aforethought.

    The requirement that the person killed be someone other than the perpetrartor excluded suicide from the definition of murder.

    with malice aforethought carries its every day meaning. Deliberate and premeditated killing of another instituted by ill will.
    Murder necessarily required that an appreciable time pass between the premeditation and execution of the intent to kill.
    The courts examine the scope of murder by eliminating the requirement of actual premeditation and deliberation as well as
    true malice. All that was required for malice aforethought to exist is that the perpetrator did act with one of the following states of mind that would constitute malice.

    The states of mind are:The intent to kill,the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm not short of death,reckless indifference to an unjustifiably high risk to human life, and
    Intent to commit a dangerous felony under the felony-murder doctrine.
    The intent to kill, the deadly weapon rule applies.
    So if the defendant intentionally uses a deadly weapon or instrument against the victim, this shows the intent to kill.
    The use of a deadly weapon or instrument a gun, a knife, or even a car with intentional use to strike the victim.

    Under the felony-murder doctrine, a felony committed must be an inherently dangerous felony, such as burglary,
    arson, rape, robbery or kidnapping.

    The underlying felony cannot be a lesser included offense such as assault,
    otherwise all criminal homicides are murder as all are felonies.

    There are different degrees of murder. First and second and third degree murder.
    Generally second degree murder is common law murder with first degree being an aggravated form.
    The aggravating factors that distinguish first degree murder from second degree are first degree murder requires a specific
    intent to kill and premeditation and the deliberate act.Acts such as strangulation, poisoning, or lying in wait are treated as first degree murder.
    A murder committed the killing must result from defendant's conduct involving a reckless indifference to human life and a conscious disregard of an
    unreasonable risk of death or serious bodily injury.
    Third-degree murder
    The person kills another person while operating a motor vehicle while being under the
    influence of alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances.
