So, both twins die. Is it a double murder?
I'm not sure about US law. Under UK law it would be. Under their law each twin is considered to be seperate. I'd guess US law is the same but I'd need to dig it up.
What if it's an execution for an act one of them commited? Is it then a murder?
I can't imagine that would ever happen. I can't imagine any nation/state would sentence one twin to capital punishment knowing that carrying out that sentence would kill the innocent twin too. But if it did occur, IMO, yes, it would be murder of the innocent twin.
What if the twins are unborn and harmed when their mother is attacked? Is it then a triple homicide?
OH, HELL YES! lmao
