NY woman dies after 21 years in coma - CBS News
Reading this story brings a question to my mind. If I inflict harm on you how long should you be allowed to live before complications of the harm I inflicted are no longer considered murder?
For instance, person A stabs person B and punctures a lung. Person B lives and is released and lets even say living a normal life. 5 years later person B does of complications due to the stabbing. Is person A still on the hook for murder? Even after serving time for the assualt? If not 5 years, what about 10? 20? 2? What does everyone think?
