Technically speaking, Charles Mansen did not kill anyone.
But he is lifetime in prison thanks to people killed on his behalf.

Here's a question, and it's not rhetorical:
If you tell someone to go out and commit murder(s) and they
do it, are YOU guilty -- or is just the person who actually committed
the crime(s) guilty? In this scenario you don't witness the murder or

pay for it, you merely _tell_ the prospective murderer to kill someone

and then they act on their own. Maybe the target of the murder isn't
even specifically named or known by either of you.

Technically you are not guilty of murder, you are guilty of conspiracy.

On the other hand, if you commit of a felony which results in a
death, you are then guilty of felony murder, even if you didn't
expect the death to occur nor participate in the act.
