7034. PROPERTY, Forfeited.—[continued].

In all cases of petty
treason and murder, one-half of the lands
and goods of the offender shall be forfeited
to the next of kin to the person killed, and
the other half descend and go to his representatives.
Save only, where one shall slay
the challenger in a duel, in which case, no
part of his lands or goods shall be forfeited
to the kindred of the party slain, but instead
thereof, a moiety shall go to the Commonwealth.
Crimes Bill. Washington ed. i, 150. Ford ed., ii, 207.


Quære, if the estates of both parties in a duel,
should not be forfeited? The deceased is equally
guilty with a suicide.—Note by Jefferson.
