How can someone be charged with two counts of first degree murder?

It goes something like this: Two people are discovered to be dead. There are signs (such as bullet holes, stab wounds) that they did not die of natural causes. The police investigate. There is evidence that these two people were killed by a specific person, who killed them deliberately, for some kind of personal gain, rather than in self defense. The police therefore lay charges of two counts of first degree murder.

What is conspiracy to murder?

Conspiracy to commit murder is defined as an agreement between two or more parties to commission and carry out a murder. A good example is Charles Manson. Manson ordered members of his cult group to carry out numerous murders. Many people think that Manson was not convicted of murder itself but just conspiracy to committ murder. This is not true. He was in fact found guilty of multiple counts of conspiracy but was also found guilty of multiple counts of first degree murder, making him just as responsible in the Tate-La Bianca killings in August 1969. Prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi felt it would have been a huge miscarriage of justice if Manson was not found guilty of first degree murder. This is why Manson received the death penalty. California law dictates that only those convicted of first degree murder with special circumstances qualify for the death penalty.
