Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Culpable homicide is a specific offence in various jurisdictions within the Commonwealth of Nations which involves the illegal killing of a person with either or both of intention or absence of intention depending upon how a particular jurisdiction has defined the offence. Unusually for those legal systems which have originated or been influenced during rule by England or later by the United Kingdom, the name of the offence associates with Scots Law rather than English Law. Culpable homicide offences are found in the following jurisdictions; the description of the local version of the offence is given where available: The term is part of the Criminal Code of Canada (sec 222), where all killings of persons are classified as culpable or not culpable homicide. In Canada there are three types of culpable homicide: murder, manslaughter and infanticide. Killings classified as not culpable are justifiable killings; thus the term is used to define the criminal intent or mens rea of a killing.
