What if One Intends to Kill a Particular Person, and Kills Another Person Instead?

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

Warning: This sensitive topic speaks about murder and injury

Divine Code for December 2, 2022

Today: Pages 325-326

Part 1:22 -- 1:24

One who intends to kill one particular person, and kills another person instead, or one who throws a stone into a group of people and kills one of them without targeting a particular victim, is considered a murderer. Likewise, if two Gentiles threw stones or shot at a group of people and killed some of them, but it is unclear which person killed which victim, both are liable as murderers since they have each killed a person.
