No, it was just ruled a homicide...

I only know because NPR actually spent like 10 minutes talking about this this evening... I can't believe they wasted time on covering it.

CNN is failing me then, it just says that Propofol OD was the cause of death. I thought they started considering it a homicide (but not officially) a few weeks ago.

I'm suprised with NPR I expect better from them.

I don't see what the motive for a homicide would be, more likely massive negligence by the doctors.

If they rule it a homicide then they can take the doctors to court. It also allows them to charge members of the family and if they are convicted they are generally not able to inherit from the person they killed.

"Homicide" simply means "one person killed another"; it does not automatically mean "murder". An accidentally-administered overdose can still be homicide, but would be what we in the UK call "manslaughter".

The term is used in the US as well.
