What is murder?

Murder is an act of homicide whereby one person kills another person. Section 18 of the Crimes Act 1900, defines murder as an act or omission (eg. a failure to provide vital care) that causes death when accompanied by:

  • an intention to kill another person; or
  • an intention to inflict grievous bodily harm on a person; or
  • reckless indifference to human life; or
  • an attempt to commit or commit an offence carrying a penalty of at least 25 years. (This is known as constructive murder.)
