David Ormerod and Karl Laird

The chapter also covers offences of infanticide, child destruction and abortion. Finally, it then moves on to provide an overview of the offences under the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Acts 2004 and 2012 of causing or allowing a child or vulnerable adult to be killed or caused serious injury.

Cover Ashworth's Principles of Criminal Law

8. Homicide  

This chapter discusses homicide offences. It covers in detail murder, defences specific to murder (resulting in a verdict of so-called ‘voluntary’ manslaughter), and so-called ‘involuntary’ manslaughter. However, these traditional topics no longer cover the whole ground, as Parliament has created a number of new homicide offences in recent years. It concludes with a review of the structure of the law of homicide, considering the question whether it is satisfactory to retain the centuries-old current structure, with murder at the top, and then manslaughter of different kinds beneath that, together with a hotchpotch of specialized homicide offences with varying degrees of gravity. For example, would the law be improved by introducing a new category of ‘second degree’ murder?
