  Felony murder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The felony murder rule is a legal doctrine according to which anyone who commits, or is found to be involved in, a serious crime (a felony), during which any person dies, is guilty of murder.
In jurisdictions that also have the death penalty, felony murder usually qualifies as a capital crime; however, there are independent constitutional limitations on the imposition of the death penalty on those guilty of felony murder.
To "qualify" for the felony murder rule, the felony must present a foreseeable danger to life, and the link between the underlying felony and the death must not be too remote.

 Felony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A felony, in many common law legal systems, is the term for a "very serious" crime, whereas misdemeanors are considered to be less serious offenses.
Crimes which are commonly considered to be felonies include, but are not limited to: aggravated assault, arson, burglary, murder, and rape (recently controversy has erupted as the US Congress has been considering bill H.R., which would add illegal immigration and assistance therein to the list of Felonies).
A felony is one in the highest class of offenses, and punishable with death or imprisonment.
