Now, it would be a REAL stretch, but there are some laws that talk about killings in the commission of a crime. For example, if the homeowner shoots one intruder, the other intruder can actually be charged with PREMEDIATED homicide because he and his partner planned the initial crime that lead to the death.

But it wouldn't surprise me to see the DA go for 2nd degree, even if all he really plans to do is offer the Jury a 3rd degree (manslaughter) as an alternative.
