For more information, see the Wikipedia article:

Killing involves the termination of life. It may be lawful or unlawful.

Lawful forms of killing may include:

  • justifiable homicide, including killing in self-defense
  • execution by the state
  • war
  • killing sanctioned by religious authority

Unlawful killings involving "malice aforethought" constitute murder.

Unlawful killings not involving "malice" may be termed manslaughter or homicide.

The killing of oneself is called suicide.
