comon sense

hoomicide does not mean murder or manslaughter.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Etymology: Latin homicidium, from homo- human being + caedere- to cut, kill

Homicide refers to the act of killing another human being. Reportedly, it can also describe a person who has committed such an act, though this use is rare in modern English. Although homicide does not define an illegal act necessarily, reportedly some jurisdictions use the word to indicate the unlawful killing of a person.

A Nolo Press glossary definition claims the legal definition of homicide involves, "The killing of one human being by the act or omission of another." A homicide defines any killing of one human being by another, criminal or otherwise. "Homicide is considered noncriminal in a number of situations, including deaths as the result of war and putting someone to death by the valid sentence of a court."
