Chapter 9

HOMICIDE AND OTHER CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON


Introductory Note: This chapter examines crimes that may be committed against the person, with a main focus on the various types of homicides. Assault, battery, mayhem, rape, and kidnapping are also discussed. Within the category “homicide,” the main one is of course murder, with the two other most important ones being voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Within the category “murder,” keep in mind that there are multiple mental states, any one of which may suffice (e.g., intent to kill; intent to seriously injure; reckless indifference to the value of life; and intent to commit a dangerous felony).
