Torture murder

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Torture murder is a loosely defined term to describe a murder where death has been preceded by the torture of the victim. In many legal jurisdictions a murder involving "exceptional brutality or cruelty" will attract harsher sentences.

Murder laws worldwide vary a great deal, but murder involving torture will generally attract a harsher penalty than a murder alone. There are however a number of ways that this is done. In the laws of Italy, Germany and Norway and many parts of the United States there are two or more "degrees" of murder, with wording such as: "...inflicting torture upon the victim prior to the victim's death"[1] typically used to rule that the highest degree should apply. In other jurisdictions, there may just one crime of murder - but the sentencing practices and guidelines are such that the aggravating circumstance of the torture will allow for a harsher than normal penalty.[2][3]
