To: Voice in your head
But what is the punishment for killing them?

The scriptures say that those who live by the sword will die by the sword. Murder by Christians is condemned in scripture, and the punishment would be death by civil government. In Christianity, judgment for murder is left in the hands of civil government. In the book of Romans, goverment is "God's minister to execute wrath on those who do evil."
