Has there been a case where a conjoined twin murdered their other half and survived? What was the out come?

One of the twins have control of the body and the other one is intelligent but can only communicate by blinking or lip smacking.

Murder is Murder

Adding all the elements of murder are proven beyond reasonable doubt then the person gets convicted. The fact that they were a sibling would be considered in sentencing as it always is.

  • Let's say I have a conjoined twin with a condition that threatens my life. Am I allowed to kill/separate from the twin in order to preserve my life? Is it considered self defense or not? Dec 17, 2019 at 17:49
