What is murder in the second degree?

Second degree murder is the unplanned, intentional killing of someone. So, if two individuals started a dispute with each other, and individual 1 immediately shot individual 2 (out of anger from the dispute), the murder was not planned, so it constitutes second degree murder. If the same situation applies, but instead of shooting individual 2 during the argument, individual 1 went home, grabbed his gun, and went to individual 2's house to shoot him. The prosecution can prove premeditation (the planning), so the charged would constitute first degree murder.
