Article: Climbing and Murder
5 out of 5 stars To GeneralZon: something that a lot of people don't realize is that there is such a thing as "statutory first degree murder". What this means is that, despite the fact that the murder was not premeditated, there are specific criterion laid out in the statute (hence the name) that allow a murder to be called, tried as, and punished as, first degree murder.

I know in Florida, and other states, a murder committed during a felony, is a "statutory first degree murder". Likewise, in many states you if you hit and kill a pedestrian while driving because you were distracted by the sun-flare this could be tried as manslaughter. If you were drinking? Homicide. Depending on the laws in this state, if a similar rule is in place, and they also accused him of a felony possession, he could get hit with first degree murder....

Do I necessary think thats right? Not necessarily. That doesn't change the law though....
