The definition of felony murder in Connecticut is: "A person is guilty of murder when, acting either alone or with one or more persons, he commits or attempts to commit (an underlying felony -- in this case, robbery) and, in the course of and in furtherance of such crime or of flight therefrom, he, or another participant, if any, causes the death of a person other than one of the participants.'' Since the murder victim was one of the participants of the crime and his death was caused by a non-participant in the crime (the robbery victim), the felony murder charge in this case is improper.
