  • explaining third-degree murder requires proof of malice aforethought

    Summary of this case from Commonwealth v. Rose

  • stating that "to convict a defendant of the offense of third-degree murder, the Commonwealth need only prove that the defendant killed another person with malice aforethought. [M]alice 'comprehends not only a particular ill-will, but . . . [also a] wickedness of disposition, hardness of heart, recklessness of consequences, and a mind regardless of social duty, although a particular person may not be intended to be injured.'"
