What are the elements of a conspiracy to commit murder?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Oliver, C081847 (Cal. App. 2019):

We have already set forth the elements of the crime of murder, the target offense of the conspiracy at issue in this case. We simply add that "a conviction of conspiracy to commit murder requires a finding of intent to kill, and cannot be based on a theory of implied malice." (People v. Swain, supra, 12 Cal.4th at p. 607.)
