Topic Chapter 5:2 -- 5:3
Anyone who neglected to take necessary precautions, and therebey his actions caused a person to be killed, is considered as if the action was intentional, and the murderer is liable to be sentenced to death in a court of law.
For example, f one intended to kill an animal, but insteda he killed a person who happened to be in the palce of the animal, he is considered to be an unintentional murdererer.
However, if there was someone close by the animal orignially, or it was in a place where there were many people, and he intended to kill the animal but instead he killed a person, this is close to an intentional murder, because he should have been more careful, in order to avoid killing any person.
