For the 1977 Italian film, see Double Murder.

Double murder is the act of murdering two people. This can be punished by back-to-back life sentences in the US. It is possible but rare for a double-murder charge to be enforced in cases of homicide in which a pregnant woman is murdered, thereby killing her unborn fetus, such as in the Laci Peterson case.[1] Even though it is not necessarily correct, the term is often attached to incidents involving higher numbers of people such as if three or four people were to be murdered.[who?]
