Course: Introduction

Homicide refers to the killing of one person by another person, whether intentional or unintentional.

Homicide is a broad term encompassing various killings, including murder, manslaughter, and justifiable homicide.

Murder is a type of homicide that involves the intentional and unlawful killing of another person, while manslaughter is the killing of another person without intent or malice aforethought. Justifiable homicide, on the other hand, refers to killing another person in self-defense or in defense of others.
