Murder is the unlawful killing of another human being with an element of planning, and generally this premeditation distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide such as manslaughter.

The maximum penalty for murder is life imprisonment, which reflects the seriousness of the crime. The maximum penalty is reserved for cases where the crime is so extreme that retribution, punishment, community protection and deterrence can only be met through the imposition of life imprisonment.
