Murder in the second degree can be accomplished in two ways:
- A person is guilty of murder in the second degree if he knowingly causes the death of another person under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.
- A person is guilty of murder in the second degree if, with the purpose of causing serious physical injury to another person, he causes the death of any person.
Murder in the second degree is a Class B felony.
