What Is Murder?
Murder (s. 229 & 235) entails the intentional killing of an individual or the reckless intentional causing of bodily harm to an individual when you know that the force applied is likely to result in death. There are essentially two types of murder: first-degree and second-degree. The former involves intentionally killing someone with premeditation, while the latter entails intentionally killing someone without premeditation. The unintentional taking of another person’s life is manslaughter (s. 234).
