King Duncan entered Macbeth’s home with no clue that this would be the place of his death. Macbeth committed this crime with a conscious mind. It is necessary to point out that he did not kill just anyone, but he killed the king. Macbeth should suffer the greater consequences for murdering such a significant
When Libby is released from jail her soul mission is to kill her husband and take revenge all within protection of the “Double-Jeopardy” clause of the 5th amendment of the Constitution. I do not believe the “Double-Jeopardy” clause would apply for this circumstance. I take this stance because if Libby killed her husband in broad daylight she would be committing a different crime. The crime committed on the boat and the one committed in broad daylight (if she would have killed him) would be two separate crimes therefore the “Double-Jeopardy” clause would not be applicable.
Over the several days of the trials, the prosecution put forward 72 witnesses. The first set of witnesses suggested that Simpson had the motive and the opportunity to kill. The second set suggested that Simpson had in fact used his opportunity to kill his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman. The first group of witness included relatives and friends of Nicole, friend of OJ and a 9-1-1 dispatcher, all produced to demonstrate Simpsons motive and his history of domestic abuse. Nicole’s sister, described seeing OJ at a dance recital for his daughter, on the day of the murder.
On October 25, 1953 at around 5 o 'clock in the evening Patrick Maloney was murdered in his residence. Mrs. Maloney seems to have killed him because he was leaving her. The murder weapon could’ve been a wrench. Mrs. Maloney should be charged with voluntary manslaughter because she seems to have had no prior intent to kill Patrick Maloney, under circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to become emotionally or mentally disturbed to the point they can’t reasonably control their emotions. Mary Maloney, spouse of Patrick Maloney, is suspect to Mr Maloney’s demise, but the question is, why?
Although killing Tybalt was Romeo's intentions at the moment, his actions were not premeditated. California’s penal code 192 states that voluntary manslaughter is an unlawful killing of a human being without malice, the offense is lessened from murder to manslaughter because of actions occurring in a heat of passion. He shall be sentenced to three, six, or eleven years in prison. I know
I believe the biggest social problem in this film is social justice. The system was created to protect the people and ensure justice. True enough she was involved with the killing of her husband, but it all could have been prevented. One night he had pulled a gun on her and she had
Ronald Carlson wanted nothing more but justice for his sister who had been murdered. Ronald talks about how he would have killed the man with his own hands if he would have gotten the chance but his mind quickly changed after he seen his sister's murder being executed, he has a new view on the situation now. He talks about how watching the execution left him full of horror and emptiness. Ronald asks a question that should be addressed he said, “Our justice system should not be dictated by vengeance.” He asked, “As a society, shouldn’t we be more civilized than the murderers we condemn?”
He was charged with rape, sodomy and kidnapping Teresa R. and assault with intent to rape Edith G. and Karen P. In June 1999, Vargas went to trial in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Three murder case studies will be presented and compare here: Marian Bates, Martha Moxley, and Elizabeth Short. Marian Bates was a 64 year old Nottingham Jeweler who was murdered in front of her husband, Victor Bates, and children. Peter Williams, a 19 year old drug addict was released early from prison and was supposedly under “intense supervision”. Williams removed his tag and violated his curfew. He and an unidentified gunman who is still at large, raided a jewelry store on September 30th 2003.
According to the Double Jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a person cannot be prosecuted twice for the same crime. The movie of the same name, involves a wife, who is prosecuted at the beginning of the movie for the alleged murder of her husband. At the end of the movie, after it is learned that the husband framed the wife, she ends up killing him. As to whether the double jeopardy clause would apply in this situation, I believe it would.

He is said to have boasted to a person in jail saying that he hurt Sam Sheppard during the fight (www.murderpedia.org). Also, he revealed to Kathy Wagner Dyala former nurse’s aid to Ethel Durkin, who was assassinated by Eberling, that he killed Marilyn. Specifically the nurse reported, “He (Eberling) told me that he had killed her and that he hit her husband on the head with a pail and that the b**** hit the hell out of me.” Why would Eberling confess to two people (www.law2.umkc)? On Sam’s side, he had no clear motive to kill his wife.
On the 14th of October 2011, Mr Rayney had submitted an application for a trial which only involved a judge without a jury present. This was due Mr. Rayney assuming that a strong bias had been manifested pre-trial as a result of the subjective publicity revolving around the death of his wife, Corryn(The Conversation, 2012). Therefore, the jury and any member of the public would already have preconceived views in favour of Mr Rayney being guilty of murdering his wife. The trial was successful for Mr Rayney where he was acquitted of murdering his wife. Similarly, this issue is somewhat common as it had also occurred in the case Evans v The State of Western Australia  WASCA 182, in which both appellants had made appeals after being convicted for murder.
