Whoa, that is huge
Mini tweet-storm to explain: felony murder rule is concept where you can be charged w/ murder if someone is killed during course of a felony
Typical murder charge requires intent; the felony murder rule says you can assume intent if death happened while def was committing a felony
In some jurisdictions it requires a violent felony, but not all. I recall a case from law school where someone had a heart attack...
...during course of a non-violent felony and the defendants were charged w/ murder. Often see this charge w/ getaway drivers & accomplices
Here's a good example from 2009. hiding in elderly woman's home, told her to sit in a chair, she had a heart attack—first degree murder
