homicide at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Killing of one human being by another. Homicide is a general term; it includes murder, manslaughter, and other criminal homicides as well as noncriminal killings. Murder is the crime of intentionally and unjustifiably killing another. First-degree murder is a homicide committed with premeditation or in the course of a serious felony (e.g., kidnapping). Second- and third-degree murder involve lesser degrees of intent. Manslaughter is commonly divided into voluntary (or first-degree) and involuntary (or second- and third-degree) manslaughter. The first type encompasses any homicide resulting from an intentional act done without malice or premeditation and while in the heat of passion or on sudden provocation; the second type is variously defined in different jurisdictions but often includes an element of unlawful recklessness or negligence. Noncriminal homicides include killings committed in defense of oneself or another and deaths resulting from accidents caused by persons engaged in lawful acts. See also self-defense.

HOMICIDE at English => English (Bouviers Law) Of Explained:

HOMICIDE, crim. law. According to Blackstone, it is the killing of any human
creature. 4 Com. 177. This is the most extensive sense of this word, in
which the intention is not considered. But in a more limited sense, it is
always understood that the killing is by human agency, and Hawkins defines
it to be the killing of a man by a man. 1 Hawk. c. 8, s. 2. See Dalloz,
Dict. h.t. Homicide may perhaps be described to be the destruction of the
life of one human being, either by himself, or by the act, procurement, or
culpable omission of another. When the death has been intentionally caused
by the deceased himself, the offender is called felo de se; when it is
caused by another, it is justifiable, excusable, or felonious.
2. The person killed must have been born; the killing before birth is
balled foeticide. (q.v.)
3. The destruction of human life at any period after birth, is
homicide, however near it may be to extinction, from any other cause.
4.-1. Justifiable homicide is such as arises, 1st. From unavoidable
necessity, without any will, intention or desire, and without any
inadvertence in the party killing, and therefore without blame; as, for
instance, the execution, according to law, of a criminal who has been
lawfully sentenced to be hanged; or, 2d. It is committed for the advancement
of public justice; as if an officer, in the lawful execution of his office,
either in a civil or criminal case, should kill a person who assaults and
resists him. 4 Bl. Com. 178-1 80. See Justifiable Homicide.
5.-2. Excusable homicide is of two kinds 1st. Homicide per
infortunium. (q.v.) or, 2d. Se defendendo, or self defence. (q.v.) 4 Bl.
Com. 182, 3.
6.-3. Felonious homicide, which includes, 1. Self-murder, or suicide;
2. Man-slaughter, (q.v.); and, 3. Murder. (q.v.) Vide, generally, 3 Inst.
47 to 57; 1 Hale P. C. 411 to 602; 1 Hawk. c. 8; Fost. 255 to 837; 1 East,
P. C. 214 to 391; Com. Dig. Justices, L. M.; Bac. Ab. Murder and Homicide;
Burn's Just. h.t.; Williams' Just. h.t.; 2 Chit. Cr. Law, ch. 9; Cro. C.

Homicide at English => English (Websters 1913) Of Explained:

Homicide \Hom"i*cide\, n. [F., fr. L. homicidium, fr. homicida a
man slayer; homo man + caedere to cut, kill. See {Homage},
and cf. {Concise}, {Shed}, v. t.]
1. The killing of one human being by another.

Note: Homicide is of three kinds: justifiable, as when the
killing is performed in the exercise of a right or
performance of a duty; excusable, as when done,
although not as duty or right, yet without culpable or
criminal intent; and felonious, or involving what the
law terms malice; the latter may be either manslaughter
or murder. --Bouvier.

2. One who kills another; a manslayer. --Chaucer. Shak.
