Why not Google the term "Felony Murder" and read how a defendant can be charged with murder if anyone dies because of the defendent's actions while commiting a totally separate felony.
You pull a gun on a teller during a bank robbery, she clutches her chest and falls over dead from a heart attack, YOU can be cahrged with murder.
It's nothing new. It's been a basic law for a long, long time.
